Tamiya Weathering Master B
« on: May 07, 2009, 18:03:05 »
Hi All:

I bought one of these weathering sets today and I'm just a bit confused on how to use it ???

The instructions say: " Use brush tip to brush powder onto model".

Problem is, the brush doesn't pick the powder up >:(

Should I introduce some thinner, or what??
Has this stuff dried out to the point of being useless?

I'm attempting to add some 'Rust' effect.

Im not sure of what you got is it a chaulk kit?
If it is you can rub it on with your finger or use a stiff brush and brush it on, try a sample on some scrap.
 Sometime you can scrap up some like with a knife then use your brush.

Mike,

This product is based on the ladies makeup system and should not need wetting. It should transfer from box to applicator easily, if not in great quantities. I reckon yours has dried up...send it back!!

Yup....it's dried out :(

It's not worth returning, so is there anyway I could moisten it up a tad??

Mike,

Want me to ask my wife how to use it?  ;D

(she's out of town so no danger of her looking over my shoulder and reading this.)

So what kind of after coat do you use with this stuff to keep it from rubbing off? I could see using it on a static display than never gets wet, or touched. But for us RC guys, there must be some way to permanently fix it to the surface, right?

Capt Jack,

Personally I always simply add a coat of matt varnish over the top of all my weathering....Job done :)
