The Alien Drinking Hole is painted in a purple with red accept scheme. Base coat was first a spray of black paint, then a spray of purple paint. The rough ribbed base dry brushed easily, taking coats of paint with little effort. As usual, I had a bit of trouble with highlights. First efforts were done with purple mixed with bleach bone, but I was left with an underwhelming pasty color. At that point, I added red as an accent & pounded on the high lights to bring the eye up the body of the terrain. Final touch is a bit of two part water effect in the basin to add the “drinking” portion of the “hole.” The water effect is tinted with a bit of orange, but the ink effect is very minimal.
