    Hi I hope that this is in the right place, can anyone tell me how to do the thin veins inside the predators masks mouth. I would like to add some veins but don't know what to use. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank You.

    The way I do it, depending on your skill, you can look at some examples of veins and either use an airbrush or a very fine brush, choose the color you want the veins to be, paint them on, and then use the original paint for the mouth, and use an airbrush to go over the veins. Lightly in areas where you want them to be seen, and thicker where you want them to sort of disappear. It will give it a transparent effect that the veins are under the skin. You may want to practice on cardboard or paper first though.

    The way I do it so what i call 'patching technique' instead of trying to get fine veins using a fine airbrush nozil I base coat in dark red then paint patches in light pink and edge the patches close together. Like this on the gums.

    Pretty much what LunaticNic said. I use a mix of airbrush and brush. Its all about layering the fine lines with the brush/airbrush and then misting with the airbrush to get some depth in there. :) 87568765.jpg
