How do I highlight panel joins?

Recommended Posts

Hi Carlosee1974, this is how I do mine. I find it quick and easy.


Gouache, tap water and kitchen roll.


Mix the gouache with a little water and gently rub on. Let it dry for a few minutes.


Wipe off with a clean piece of tissue.


You might have to revisit any sections your not happy with. If you apply too much, just rub it off with a damp tissue.

Hope this helps, Joe.

Hello there...

There's a section on Britmodeller called Tips and Tricks - if you look at that or do a search for washes, as they're called, you'll find all sorts of posts on this subject. Some of them lead you to useful links such as this one:


Have a read, have a watch, have a go...and get ready for the influx of posts warning you not to overdo it!

That's good advice by Dean. I should have said gouache can stain the paint. Gloss paint is less prone to staining. Always try it out first on a small section to make sure your happy with the result.
