ISU-122 build – Part 7:Weathering (fading and streaks)

1 Comment

  • The wooden tool handles were stained with Winsor & Newton “Raw Umber” oil paint.
  • To simulate a degree of paint variation and fading, the horizontal surfaces of the hull were dampened with enamel thinner and dots of oil paint (Winsor & Newton “Raw Umber”, “Payne’s Grey”, “Permanent Magenta”, Abteilung 502 “Faded Grey”, “Luftwaffe Yellow” and AMMO Oilbrusher “Olive Green”, “White”) added. These were then blended in with a round brush in a circular motion. To simulate streaking, the same procedure was repeated on the sloping sides, this time the dots being drawn down vertically with a flat brush. The end result is best described as subtle, but I guess that is better than being overdone.
  • Further streaking was done with AMMO Oilbrusher “Starship Filth”, “Starship Bay Sludge” and “Rust”.
