ISU-122 build – Part 8:Weathering (dust and rain marks)

1 Comment

  • AMMO “Oilbrusher” oil paints (“Dust” A.MIG-3516, “Dusty Earth” A.MIG-3523) were dotted on the much of the horizontal surface, underside and running gear of the vehicle, which had previously been dampened with enamel thinner. Next, using a round brush the oils were dissolved and “melted” onto the surface, particularly to collect around raised objects or recesses. This was my first pass at achieving dust and dried earth effects, although I left a few areas deliberately less dusty.
  • Following this, the same oils were dotted on the sloping sides. This time a flat brush was used to draw them down the sides, in the hope that this would simulate rain marks or dried streaks.
  • Once all was dry, everything was sprayed with a 1:2 mixture of Mr.Color “Flat Clear” (182) and Mr.Color Leveling Thinner. Thus, a matt surface was ready for the addition of pigments.
