Video Review - Humbrol's Weathering Powders
If you're constantly wondering how to produce a nice weathered look using chalks, or pigments, or powders, or whatever the go-to terminology of the day is, then you may want to check out Humbrol's new video.
Humbrol has a line of weathering powders which allow the modeler to create realistic weathering effects by replicating mud, dirt, and rust, among other things, that tend to cling to the side of vehicles. It is a nice video with visuals supported by step-by-step commentary. It is also backed up by some smooth instrumentals which make for a more pleasurable viewing experience. Though the video shows these techniques on a locomotive, the same procedures are relevant for modelers of all subjects looking for the same results. It is a simple but effective video. At only 6 minutes and 42 seconds long, it certainly won't cut into your day.
