First weathering attempt

Well after seeing all the stunning work on here i decide to try weathering a boxcar just to get some ideas on techniques and styles. Yes it was daunting but we gotta start somewhere so i gave it a light coat of floquil instant weathering then used a rust wash with wash/ rust powder round the door., im fairly happy with the result.

Are you sure that's a first attempt? Looks like you've had a lot of practice to me. Very nice job, period, never mind first attempt!  8)

Thanks guys, yes it was my first attempt and if im honest was a bit of an accident as i managed to get some powder in the wash but kinda liked the effect as it gave a bit of texture to the rust streaks! Now i may be convinced to dabble a bit more

Hey Paul-20 times better than my first attempt!

Looks great-& sometimes a great technique comes about
by accident. (Someone had to do if first!)

Now go dabble some more.
