At the moment I work on a power transformer. It's a french kit consisting some brass photolithography and laser cut.

Hi Sami,

I would be interested in how you designed the √Ątzplatinen with colors, because I like the result very well.

What a great combination: Etched brass to show the brick sides and ends properly at the corners along with excellent artwork. I bet that took a lot of time to paint. -- Russ

Excellent work! I'm curious how you did the mortar between the bricks. It's very clean.

Ray and Russ, it's not difficult !

I painted the bricks with a white colors Vallejo. I used my airbrush for this work. After I painted the bricks with a brush pencil in the sense of diagonal to not fill the joints.
To finish I painted some bricks with the differents colors.

After the weathering is classical (washes or filters).






Ray Dunakin

Thanks Sami. In large scale such brushing requires a light touch to avoid filling in the mortar lines, so I appreciate the skill it takes to do it in a smaller scale.

Thanks! That shows how much work it takes to create the effect you want and it is not simply splashing a couple washes on and calling it "good"

Thank you very much for showing the process, I feel very much the same, except that the first clorication of the stones is done with a roller of linocut. For this I give irregularly different tints of the stone paint application on a glass plate.
