Hi all, A little question. I'm experimenting with Vallejo special effects. In this case Chipping Medium. Here is the thing. I painted old rust. Then rust. Then applied Chipping Medium, let it dry. Then Applied Verdigris, Let it dry. Now I tried to "chip" by using a stiff brush like it is recommended. It doesn't work. I have to use something like a toothpick to scratch the surface, but that chips too much and the bare metal shows. So, any of you had experience with this? What am I doing wrong? Do I have to "chip" while the verdigris is still wet? Do I need more layers underneath? I used two layers of Old Rust and a Layer of rust before I applied the medium. Then one layer of verdigris. Would appreciate any advice on this.
