Stick primarily to edges where the light would hit and always drag your brush towards the brightest point. If you added scratches previously, reinforce them with a smaller, thinner line underneath.

Red Sensor

  1. For this detail, I basecoated with Khorne Red then glazed/highlighted smaller and smaller with increasingly light colours. I went back and forth until it looked right.

Once the gold details were painted in, I separated the gem with a thin line of Khorne Red mixed with Abaddon Black .
