Trying out Weathering Powders

Post  AArdvark085 on Fri Feb 10, 2012 12:13 am

Hey I'm trying a new weathering technique. I am using pastel chalk as weathering powder. It's kinda old school before all of the new pigmented weathering powder and the new Forgeworld stuff. Anyway let me know what you think? If I can figure it out maybe I can do a how too video or something.

looks great only thing i have to recommend is to do some washes after the weathering to help it blend and add shadowing. But it is def ace quality work Smile

Looks like it's been driving through a desert or a loose dirt and gravel area... pretty neat.

So do you think I should clear coat it then wash? Or attempt a pin wash in amongst the powder?

i would say since you are going with a rusty look i would matte finish it or gw purity seal. then spot wash badab black on the "shadow spots" and Gryphon sepia on the "highlight spots". So like on the top of hatch frames add a little gryphin sepia to simulate water buildup and then flip the tank over and add badab black on the underside of the hatches. but to be honest it looks great the way it is.

i labeled the pic black lines for badab and orange for gryphin sepia.




the amount of depth the model will achieve from this will blow you away Wink
