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. Done! Came out allright, but the streaks seems to be making a big difference.im
I recently got back into miniatures. Well, I bought some regular primer from Home Depot and it dried really fast, which was a plus. But when I was painting, the primer was rubbing off, and when it wasn't rubbing off. The paint would like, 'chip' my paint. Is there a different type of primer that I could use to get more detail, or can I just somehow turn my primer into liquid primer. Any suggestions?
