Needed to try some chipping effects for the Daihatsu project....
Okay, these are far from pretty, and the color choice is atrocious, (these are straight from the chipping, no additional effects/weathering)…..but all I really wanted to do with these is to test some ideas re chipped paint….and, I thought someone else might find them of interest.
The left piece was done to experiment with trying to create the streaked chipping effect often found on old wood, metal and after seeing it, I think it would possibly be useful for “winter whitewash”. This one used a mix with AK chipping fluid.
The piece on the right, no effort was made to create an actual pattern/shape…but rather to try and create the softer, smaller chipped and blended edges, that occur at wear areas, and especially horizontal rusting surfaces such as car hoods, roofs and fenders. What I was really looking for in this experiment was the edges and mottled green remaining in the rust areas. This was done entirely without using any type of resist, under the paint (NO hairspray, chipping fluids, gum Arabic, rubber cement, salt etc.)
All paints were Tamiya. Both samples were covered with a light coat of Testors Dullcoat.
