Default Weathering copper with nihilakh oxide

Hello all, this is my first tut. I really hope it helps.

Step 1. Materials needed : suitable brush, nihilakh oxide tech paint, tissue paper.
Step 2. Paint onto the area you want to weather(you dont need to be neat here)
Step 3. Use the tissue to remove most of the paint, only leaving it in the recesses

You must be in my head, man. That's my next project! hahaha

Is the Nihilakh Oxide a different consistancy, or is it just like watered down light blue paint? Also have you tried the Typhus Corrosion with it? I've heard people say they work well together, but haven't spoken with anyone that's actually used it together or seen any pictures.

Hey man, the oxide paint is chalky(weird) but it goes on like a thick wash. I've not tried the combo but it seems interesting.

I've done the combo and it looks alright. Although I did it over a Leadbelcher dry brush, Typhus Corrosion then the oxide. It looks alright... I don't have any photos yet (I thought I did). I'll have to update my PLOG with my finished Plague Marine squad with the oxide rusted weapons....

The true nature of Chaos is beyond any comprehension. No mere mortal can ever hope to understand these matters, and the wise do not puzzle too deeply over Chaos Gods, or try to fathom their wars, rivalries and bickerings.

TH-TH-TH-THREAD NECRO!

I totally forgot about the wiping step, I'm glad I found this. I've applied a layer of nuln oil on top of the verdigris effect and I think I like it; dulls it down a bit.

I used it for the first time on my Battlewagon HERE. Combined with Ryza Rust, it's really easy and straight forward to get a convincing effect.
Typhus corrosion is a textured paint, with tiny "grit" plastics in a flat brown pigment. It creates a lovely surface, and when you drybrush with the Ryza Rust, it highlights the raised portions of the texture, and looks lovely.
