Tamiya Weathering Products
« on: July 12, 2005, 07:52:57 AM »
Does anyone here plan on using these products from Tamiya?  Actually, these are listed as "coming soon" products, but I just saw this video clip that a friend of mine sent me, and it shows them using these to create very nice weathering effects.  They look like makeup kits, but I doubt you would want to put this stuff on your face.   :P  Not sure how much this stuff would cost, but it might be a great way to add that weathering effect to your figures and/or vehicles.

Thats basically the same thing as make up Chris. Its a dry paint much like water colors of our youth. Try those. To weather my old army kits I just dry brush. When I get home I'll take pics of my latest military truck I did, that was all done with dry brushing and fake snow.

I've used the drybrushing technique on some of my clones, but this seems to be a little nicer looking then using drybrushing.  They do look a lot like makeup, but I'm sure they're totally different ingredients.

here is a quick snap of it fully weathered, I wanted it to look like wet mud under the snow and to show signs of real use, hence the smear marks on the side where some joe was pushing, I'll have to look for the in process pics
