Weathering wood correctly
« on: June 12, 2014, 08:18:47 PM »

Hi all.

I have been building a new layout in H0, in a Showcase.

I am building and weathering a station for the layout (it's European), and I have added a warehouse to the main buidling. I have used a lot of the techniques I've learnt building tank cars in 1/35.

The buidling has a wooden deck, made out plastic, but I don't like my work when it reaches the wood work. So, what kind of weathering could I do to this deck? Airbrush? Brush? Paints? Pigments? Oil paints?



Thank you.

You might try Testors Dullcoat or some similar matte clear finish to cut the shine down

Very nice!  Looks  to me like this weathering technique could apply to smaller scales too (not just H0 and larger).

I started with Harold's technique, and used it with variations over the years.  The last time I used it was with Ivory Black oil paint (instead of ink) on this cattle car:
