Hi guys I know i promised this a while ago to be honest I dont really know how to do a tutorial..but I guess theres always first time..so lets see how bad I can butcher this...
Weathering a vehicle part 1
Do all your basecoats/blending and decals..basically finish your model.
This is what you will need. Rhinox Hide for old rust
Leadbealcher iron breaker for fresher scratches
AN orange colour for semi-fresh rust
A sponge of any type
Tear of a small peice of sponge
Dip it in to the paint and then wipe off as much as possible
Test it on your finger you need just enough to leave a mark..like dry brushing.
Dabbing the sponge not too hard or you will get large paint spots left.
Apply over the model to desired effect..i try to hit the spots where i feel debris would regularly hit
How much to apply is a personal choice
Take the Leadbealcher and repeat the process...going over the previous colour..you can alternate between the metallic colour for different shades.
Now taking the Organge.. repeat the process again but..not using as much and only picking out areas.
You can continue to alternate the colours back and forth to get some really interesting colour matches..
I dont think it really matters what order you do the paint in.
I thinks this is an easy and effective way to get a great looking weathered effect, but be careful you can over do it..take it easy and just think about what you would see in real life..Ii hope this will help you.
