Term:  drybrushing



Drybrushing is a painting technique where most of the paint is wiped from the brush before bringing it into contact with the model. Because the brush is 'dry' the paint 'catches' on the edges and raised texture of the model creating a useful highlight.
Drybrushing techniques are often used in conjunction with washes.
