weathering, changing, card colours?

I have bought quite a few card models (downloads) from Scalescenes recently, most of which I chose brown brick colouring.  I have since found that the real buttresses and retaining walls appear to be blue grey colour.

What is the best method of weathering or colouring the paper/card without losing the detail or damaging them?

Hi Mike,

did these change colour after you put them on the layout ?

Sunlight will fade some colours or printer inks.

I have some Bilteezi platforms that are fading from dark weathered red brick to weathered yellow brick!

On the other hand, you could call it Engineering Brick blue...

 

Spectrum Noir do a range of spirit based felt tip pens in useful transparent colours that may be helpful in recolouring your walls without distorting them.

These are available at decent craft stores for card making and artist supplies.

You would need to test them first of course.

 

cheers,

 

Chris

Thanks Chris,

I bought another set of the sheets, this time in blue grey.  Now I have brown brick and blue grey to choose from.

cheers,
Mike
