Jolly good show.

Care to pass on you're weathering technique?

 

Stuart

Hi Stuart the weathering is done using an oil wash of Burnt Sienna thinned with white spirit same as all my builds

 

I keep old cleaned out paint pots and half fill with white spirit I then add the oil paint usually a brush full and mix until thinned out in the pot i keep various colours at hand to use together

I also used Raw Umber to darken the drain holes in the same way I also use a old hair dryer to help speed up the drying remember to build it up in layers if you use this method little is more as they say

I will try and do a better example of the weathering when I get a bit of time on Friday

 

Cheers for asking
