G day every one. Here you go my 1st weathering class about how to make you base very “dirty” ( apologie for my poor english in advance)

:D :D :D :D :D This is a very simple little base.

Image

1st spray it with tamiya spray as its base coat and base color

Image


See done and to make the base more fun I put a little sticker on the side
My “caution ” sticker ~~~

Image

Doing a little high lighting with this 2 colors on the edges

Image

Didn’t see much difference since the photo are pretty heavy

Image

Now here we go the masking stuff .
Image


A little masking stuff on the palette
Image

Have a little piece of sponge and dip in the masking stuff

Image

Dab them on the base be pretty careful you don’t want a lot of masking stuff on the base
And you wannna do this pretty quit cuz masking stuff dry pretty quick

Image

Paint a red line

Image

Stick off the masking stuff with blue tag or you can use other way to get rid of the mask stuff
And Here we go the effect

Image

Other number on the line

Image

Now doing the damage around the base to make it very “old” by using this color

Image


It is a black brown color so if you cant get it anywhere you can mix it

Image

I prefer to do a lot of this black spot damage around the edges you can also try to do a lot of em
In the middle of the base up to you
Image
Image

Before the fun part topcoat the base

Image

Alright here we go 1st Windsor and Newton oil colors

Image

A little of em on the palette ( or paper)

Image

You need zippo oil for the wash

Image

See dab the paints like that

Image

Wash it with zippo oil 1st stage of weathering is done

Image

The pigments are for the further round

Image

Water them down with oil water whatever you want and paint them to the place you want. After them dry it will have this very dry dusty effect like rust.

Here we go the final look
The weatherings on armor is a little different but basically pretty much the same
Ill post a article If I have time on how to do weathering on armor

this base is for you Kyle hope you like that mate

Very nice steve! :D

I wouldn't worry about your english, the guide is one of the easiest and clearest guides to follow that I've come across, very impressive :)

Quick question, after you do the 'black spot' damage (which I presume is also using the foam technique?) - it looks almost metallic, did you do anything for that to come out that way?

Great article man. The base looks great. Where can you get pigments in Sydney? Does Eckersleys stock them?

Steve, that was fantastic - so clear and easy to follow, even photos of all the materials! You have so much to offer this community, thanks for sharing :D . You've inspired me to do some experimentation with oils.

Great article Steve, you make it look so easy.

I've got a few of the old SF3D models lying around like this one

Image

You've inspired me to dig it out and have a go at your weathering technique.

They are from a range of Japanese kits back in the 80's, with a range of armour suits that looked like they could have come from an extended second world war. You can still pick them up on ebay and not too long ago a Japanese company produced some prepainted 1/35 scale versions that you got randomly on a box.

Here's a link to some info on the range:

Sorry to hijack you excellent article Steve :oops:

Thanks Simon. I think they are really cool looking, reminds me of Castle Wolfenstein, with the crazy German Inventions...

Wow Panzer that is an awesome tutorial for sure! Thanks so much for sharing because I may give this a go when I do the converted Chimera in my closet (I mean the GW Tank kit, no a monster :P).

I'll have to keep an eye out for those pigments too.
