And finally . . . .

 

Here's a photograph of the two vans together, so that you can see the similarities and differences between them.

Very little material has been used on both subjects but, nonetheless, the effects have produced vehicles that have been in use for some time and suffered the ravages of time and weather. Both would probably benefit from some more work on the roof, but that would merely be an additional thin coat or two of Dark Wash, left to dry and then rubbed with a soft cloth to remove excess pigment.

 

Merry Christmas everybody.

Fantastic Mick, would you airbrush that wash on to the roof?

I really like the fact you havent used many products. I've read a lot about weathering in books and magazines and most use a load of different products and many steps and it all seems a bit daunting. Having read your stuff I recon I could have a go.

Great stuff.

Thanks, Steve.

 

Definitely airbrush territory. The idea is to discolour, rather than cover, the roof. By only using a very small amount of a very few products and working the surface with the right brushes, all sorts of effects can be created with minimal effort.

 

Have a go!

You're welcome, Rich. Hopefully you've seen that it's not a black art. Well, not as black as soldering, anyway. . . . . . . . .
