M3 Lee build – Part 5:Weathering (fading, streaks, dust)

1 Comment

  • The following oil paints were added as dots to the various surfaces (the lighter colours higher up the vehicle than the darker): AMMO Oilbrusher “Black”, “White”, “Dark Brown”, “Medium Grey”, “Olive Green”, “Yellow” and Winsor & Newton “Payne’s Grey” and “Permanent Magenta”. They were then drawn down the vertical sides with a flat brush or worked into the horizontal surfaces in a circular motion. This was to attempt an effect of paint fading and streaking.
  • To simulate dirt and dust, the horizontal sides of the hull and turret were dampened with enamel thinner and then dots of AMMO Oilbrusher “Dusty Earth”, “Dark Mud” and “Starship Filth” were added. Then, using a round brush, the oil paints were blended.
  • To simulate dirt streaks, the vertical and sloping sides of the hull and turret were dampened with enamel thinner and then dots of AMMO Oilbrusher “Dusty Earth” and “Medium Soil” were added. Then, using a flat brush, the oil paint was drawn down the side to simulate streaks. After drying, this process was repeated multiple times.
