Here we are again! This time it's not an assignment but rather a small tutorial on how I do stuff. Did all of these examples a total of 30 mins. You can achieve excellent results with more time spent naturally.

First off some tips and tools used:

NATURAL SAND: Made by Liquitex. Basically acrylic gel with fine sand mixed in. You could probably get the same effect using PVA glue mix with some fine sand. Or even a medium or varnish. Be creative lol.

PATINA = 1:1 Goblin green and Enchanted blue, then 1:1 green/blue mix and water, and a little white to flatten the color.

DRY BRUSHING: I use a Stippler in this. Rather large round brush, short bristles that make a flat head.
--Always brush the best you can, perpendicular to the edges you are highlighting--



HERE WE GO!





---- Did the EXFOLIATION tutorial because I get asked how to do Corrosion building under painted armor. This example is a bit extreme but you get the idea and the process involved.--

Good tutorial - thanks. One question though; what do you mean by 'patina touch up'?

In the dry brushing step I got the brass in some areas covering the patina (green/blue mix I talk about in the introduction) and the touch up part is exactly what it sounds like. Touch up the green where the brass was not suppose to go and you're finished!

The exfoliation technique (all of these really...) would work great to make for old, torn up necrons!

Is the natural sand actually melting the plastic then, or is it on top of the shoulder pad?

Natural Sand is just acrylic gel and sand. It's painted on as a chunky medium and the sand adds texture and helps it keep its shape. It does not harm the plastic at all.

Fair enough. It was just a bit tricky to see from the pictures.

The close up pictures of the shoulder pads like that kind of make me feel sick... lol it looks grouse.

Of coarse! Anything you need. Here is my dread that uses all three techniques.

All the chunky rust you see was started using Liquitex Natural Sand + bestial brown mixed. SHORTCUT TECHNIQUE
You can see the WIP in my blog.
