anyway anwser to the question i use blot gun matel on the edge of the base so you can see a little bit of matel showing .
for the pigments i order em online from spain ....... i dont know if you can buy em in sydney .. seb say there is a hobby shop that sell em in chatswood but i dont know where it is ... i think you can get em in wollongang? check em online you ll find there are around 4-5 euro each so should be that expensive . also there are subsitute for the pigment
Eckersleys sell pasto??( wrong spelling probably) very like stuff you can also try em .

hehehe. yes you can use Soft Pastels and just chop it up fine to get a similar effect. But I have used both, and I think the MIG pigments are better...

There was an article in one of the Ravage specials which did the weathering the same way with the masking fluid. So it's nice to read one that is in English and not French! Great results!

Inspirational article! I think we might see a lot of weathered miniatures and kit builds on here over the next few weeks!

I tried out the masking fluid last night, I was reasonably happy with how it turned out (will take some photos tonight), but I was wondering how you get so many fine dots with it?

When I tried for the smaller amounts, I found the whole lot just dried really quickly on the sponge. Too much and I end up with a huge glob on the surface.

You've managed to get lots of little tiny globs on your base from what I can gleam from the photos.

Ah ok - do you always add it with the sponge? Or do you sometimes do tiny dots using a brush or a pin?

Could certainly do with a little extra detail on the masking fluid.

How long can you / should you leave it before painting over?
Exactly how do you remove it?
