The Effects paints have been developed to create realistic looking effects to painted miniatures. Effects paints are usually the last you will paint onto a miniature as some of them are glossy (Blood, Slime and Wet Mud for instance). There are 9 Effects paints also covering Mixing Mediums & Varnishes. Mixing Medium is a transparent resin base designed to thin or dilute your regular Warpaint without changing the flow and viscosity of the Acrylic or Metallic Warpaint. Perfect when building up highlights for blending layers. Add a little at a time untill you're happy with the effect.
