Weathering Wood

Postby Spud » Thu Feb 28, 2013 6:56 pm

I taught i would start this off here, I was asked by George to do a demo on weathering wood at the next meet,

But showing how to do this at the meet would take up everyone's evening and then some, so later tonight i will make one of these and paint it in step by steps,

Image

at the meet i will show how to paint stain and do pealing paint easy stuff.

Try number two,

This is my piece i will demonstrate how to get an old dirty look to some wood, its just made from ice pop sticks and a bit of balsa
Image

Oils on the Left AK on the Right
I start off by giving it a dirty Wash.
Image

Next Seal it With a good coat of Klear/Future

Once Dry i used Hairspray one one half and AK Heavy chipping on the other
Image

Once that was dry after about 20mins i painted both halves with Tamiya paint. I let that sit for about 15mins.
Image

Next i used a selection of old stiff brushes. I soaked one half at a time and gently agitated the paint up and down until i started to see it wearing off,
Image

Once that was dry with some help from the hairdryer i gave it another dirty wash with a different shade this time.
Image

Next using the slimy colors i dabbed a bit across the top then using a clean Flat brush I dragged it down ward to get it to streak, i done the same with the oils
Image

On the bottom i put less along the ends the using a clean brush again i stippled it this time.
Image

Last was the rusty nails. (fuzzy pic) i dint use oils on the other half this time because i couldn't find my oil color for it.
Image

And all i used, (again Fuzzy pic) Ak products are handier to use as they are ready made, some of the oil colors i needed to mix but no difference in how its done
Image

Hope this is helpful to someone. ill be doing more at teh next meet. this one was just too long to show at that.

Spud, this is a superb SBS! :DX Fantastic results and nicely explained. Another brilliant post that I'd like to give a go some day.

Thanks for going to the trouble and I'm sure this will prove to be very useful.

Cheers!
