How-to: Getting that worn look to an aircraft’s camouflage using dry pigments

August 2, 2014 in How-to

A wee tutorial of getting that worn look to an aircraft’s camouflage by working with dry pigments. This is part of an ongoing video blog by Mr. Gary “Making Models Again” Bottoms.

Example kit in this case is the Airfix 1/72 Hawker Typhoon Mk Ib

  1. Very interesting….love these little videos (you should post one a month) – I use a similar product, Doc O’Briens weathering powders. A very wide range of colors and very fine powder (almost like talc). Only difference I can see is you eliminate the “evaporation” time for the pigments [he uses] to become powder.
    Always like to see others techniques however.

  2. A super little tutorial Gary. Very effective technique and your results on the finished Typhoon are wonderful (is that really 1:72? ;-)). I will give this a go on my next project.

    Cheers ol’ chap! 🙂

  3. I forgot to ask, how long does the liquid take to evaporate into powder?

  4. Excellent video Gary, very effective weathering. Always like to see a man savor his refreshments as well.
