You can see a little more of the stages involved above. I used a yellow/mustard blend to lay down some shaded areas, then mixed in the browns and reds as the dried. One thing I was really impressed by is the amount of time you have to work with glazes, both on the model in defining exactly where you want the pigment to dry, and on the palette. It was quite refreshing to paint for over an hour without having to add a retarding medium or thin down a new batch of paint!
This guy is a Necron Canoptek Wraith, and the first of many Necrons to come. I had dabbled in some glazing of models for existing armies I had already started painting, and the results were so different to the previous models I decided to start something new for this experiment. I'm sure they will end up looking quite different after a few months of glazing, but perhaps the real test will be in speed and consistency, both of which are a problem at the moment! Looking forward to a few extra tips once the "Painting Pyramid" videos arrive. Keep it up James!
