A Journey Through One Kind Of Weathering Process

I mentioned in one of my threads that I would do a posting showing some of the stages of my weathering processes

Starting from this:
LNER 12 Ton Vans 004

I started by giving the body work with a coat of Ronseal satin hardglaze the water based variety.

A couple of days later I coated the entire body work in a ‘grot’ coat made up from Vallejo Flat earth, Dark Sea Grey and a hint of black.

Once again I left it for a few days- I had done this much while up at the cottage but the rest from this point was done at home.

Next I started to remove the ‘grot’ coat using a flat ended brush dipped in Meths a bit at a time.

At this stage I left it for a few more days while I decided if I had finished.

I decided that I wasn’t, so I did a bit more using the same technique of flat brush and meths.
