There is a Kickstarter going on until January 7th, 2019 for the English version of the book “The Art of Miniature” by Mohand Art.
This is my first go at using chipping medium, and in all an experiment with weathering.
Just wanted to share my experiment with everyone, do not really consider this as a tutorial as I did not know what I was doing. :o)
1. A piece of a blister pack plastic, prime black, and painted a mix of Black Brown and Dry Rust.
2. Wet blending with following colors in random pattern; Black Brown, Wet Mud, Explosion Orange.
3. Wash with mix of Flesh Wash and Dark Red.
4. Stipling and a bit of wet blending with Wet Mud and Explosion Orange.
5. Wash with mix of Flesh Wash and Wet Mud.
6. Adding Chipping medium to the top and water and salt to the bottom.
The idea with the salt is that it can be peeled of later to leave 'paint chips'. But I only seen it achived with an airbrush, so wanted to try it with brush.
7. Green paint, couple of layers. Way most of the salt fell off, leaving only the very small pieces, they do give a good structure of rust-bubling paint though.
8. Water to start the chipping. I ned a bit more patience, so the first chips went too deep and removed some of the brown paint too. And to get the chipping look good seems to need some practice..
I used a tooth brush and a tooth pick to scratch the green paint off.
9. 'Repaired' some places with stipling of Wet Mud and Explosion Orange and a wash of Dry Rust.
10. Added streaks with Strong Tone and Dry Rust. And made the rust patches darker with Dry Rust.
Those streaks really breathed life into the decay.
Came out allright, but the streaks seems to be making a big difference.im
Finished the last mini in the Bones 3 Ogre Command set. Here is the Ogre Chieftain.
He doesn't have a squire to polish his armor and the goblins use spit and their loincloths so....his armor isn't in the best of shape.
The shield on the back probably needs some battle damage but I hated to mess it up after I spent so much time getting it to look nice! Maybe he "found" it.
So here are pictures of the Ogre Chieftain and a group shot at the end. (I need a large photo background!)
I added a tutorial on how to do the rust effect.
A speed paint I did using Siri's tutorial on rust.
I actually did this at the same time I was laying down a rusty undercoat for my Rottweiler grav tank. Since I was doing the various colors for the tank, I did several terrain pieces, a couple vehicles and this all at the same time.
By no means a competition level paint job, but pretty good for tabletop with what I figure is less than 20-30 minutes into it.
