    Default Weathering Tutorial - Chipped Paint on Rolling Stock & Locomotives

    Hi Everyone,

    I had posted links to my other videos in the general modelling techniques forum where they really should be here as tutorials. My latest video shows how to make a realistic chipped paint technique using some really basic materials. Hopefully you find it informative!

    That...is outstanding! Thank you for posting this video. Well done Sir!

    I like the torn sponge effect, very convincing. I wonder...what it would look like if you dabbed the paint loaded sponge into shaved brown chalk dust, then apply it to the model? Would it give an ever so slight "rusty blistering" effect when dabbed with a sponge?

    I'd try that on a test piece. The next video I have planned/in the pipe actually deals with a couple of rust effects in more depth. Oddly enough my first "round" of videos isn't with weathering powders or chalks, but that's more personal style. You can get a neat blistering effect by taking some rust-coloured oil paints, mixing it with rust-coloured pigments and then "flicking" it onto the model. That gives some of the rust a bit more texture. The trouble is, in N-Scale, the blistering would be pretty flat.

    Oh yes, and I'm going to be experimenting a bit with crackle medium for that real peeled paint look... all fodder for new videos. I'd love to hear people's ideas and suggestions of what they'd like to see videos on.

    I should post a link to the rest of the playlist too, as it really belongs in this forum...

    User-friendly suggestion: lose the soundbed during the actual tutorial. It's a distraction.
