I tried to use MIG pigmens with groundwork for a diorama - I used dark mud, european dust and russain mud.
I tried the method given by MIG, and mixed matt cote from humbrol, tamiya thinner and the pigment. at first all went well, when I brushed the mixture with only the dark mud mixed with europe dust on the ground.
I decided to add some depth by adding the russaion earth to the mix to darken it.
well, after a few strokes, the color I got was turning red (!), so: what did I do wrong? I also tried the russain pigment alone, and when I I brushed it the dark color vanished, leaving the ground again with a red hue... is the russain earth color a strong reddish color, looking at the dry pigment it looks like black-brown color.
All these a side, When it was dry I tried the pigments dry, and result is spectacular. I never seen anything like it and it is turning into the best groundwork I managed to create. But I'll feel better if I can use the varnish-thinner mix to fix it to the base.
Thanks for the assistance,
