whats the difference between the rust streaks and rust wash?
Does the "streaks" contain more solids?
Yeah, it's thicker. When you airbrush it on though it doesn't make as much of a difference since you're controlling the final thickness. I airbrushed on both streaky to get a varied appearance.
So you airbrush your rust on ? I've haven't heard or seen that done before , I always assumed that it was applied by brush .
Don't be too long with your final images !
I haven't been completely idle . I have started the island by gluing a number of pieces of urethane foam to some plywood and dowel . The Remora will be attached to the ply with a couple of builder's favourite friends , namely a couple of 4" nails . Not as brutal as it may sound .
I shall glue a further layer of foam ontop of the ply .
I have also decided what else is going onto the island .
As this diorama is supposed to be set sometime in the future I wanted to show evidence of a previous time when man had occupied that bit of land . So I have opted for an old mine adit with trackwork coming out . I am toying with putting a winding winch and/or the remains of the winch house . Made of brick , of course !
This island was once part of a mainland and at some point broke away , much the same way as an iceberg . therefore I shall have the trackwork coming out of the side someway down from the top suggesting that it had been ripped out when the island separated . this will give me lots of opportunity to model rusty junk and vegetation .
It is good to finally get my teeth stuck into a new project ,
