Painting Oak Leaf
A Quick & Easy Method
by Jaume Ortiz

This is a small tutorial on how to paint WWII German "Oak Leaf" camouflage in five easy steps. We're not trying to depict a perfect rendition of this kind of camo. The real pattern used 5 different shades of color and we'll only be using 3 of them. The goal is only to show a fast and easy way to replicate this pattern.

I'll demonstrate using Alpine Miniatures' figure #35037 with a Hornet head, where I've sculpted the side eagle and Totenkopf badge to convert the figure into an SS soldier.

Step 1

First of all, we finish the head and choose the right base color (Brown Violet) for the camo, through observation of pictures of real camo clothing. In this case, we'll mixed Chocolate Brown VC-872, Old Rose VC-944, and Black VC-950 in an approximate ratio of 6:3:1.
