Well after painting loads of undead Napoleonics and starting on a plan to take over the world with undead skeletons I decided that I needed a way to make rust look good….so i had heard of this range of materials…
So rather than just slop on the rust I decided tonuse some superglue and fine sand to make a texturedsurdace on the axe…in hindsight I should have just used baking powder, but hey ho…
So when it was dry I slapped some metal colour over the top and then threw some of the rust stuff on the axe head…. bloody he’ll in about two minutes it looked like rusty metal… I kid you not
I was actually bit gob smacked, sadly with the size of the mini it is really hard to see with a camera but I did try and get a photo…
You will have to trust me, it looks better in real life.
I then went for the moss effect for the grave stone…..
Again I was happy with the result.
Now to be honest this was me spending 30 seconds flinging a new product on a model, but it seems to do what it is meant to do. I will find something a bit bigger to paint another day.
This stuff isn’t cheap, at all. Makes Contrast paint look cheap. The best deal I got was the three bottles for £22 with free postage. It is a solvent based paint and dries really, really fast, so no smoking fags near them when they are open. As you can see from the bottles they are a good old size, so should last a while.
As for the verdigris, I want some of the skeletons on bronze armour…so thought this might help.
I am hoping to do some more testing of these sometime soon and will keep you updated to speed on what I find.
