I used the Valleja water based [Desert Sand] textured paint, that I applied using a spacheler onto a small piece of balsa wood, this material dries in 30 - 45 minutes:- being a textured paint it develops a hard crush similar to a biscuit in appearance. Test Piece on left of photo.
The other TEST is using the Humbrol Weathering Washes and here I have used each bottle twice, 1/2/3 and 4 = straight from the bottle and 1a/2a/3a/and 4a = mixed with thinner, as these are an enamel based wash they are best applied to an Acrylic finish. #5 and 6 are the Humbrol Powder, straight from the bottle, while #5a and 6a are mixed with thinner. I also used a MIG Pigment in both powder and mixed with Alcahol, I also have the Velleja Pigments but as yet have not tested them.
When you go home tell them of us and say, for your tomorrow we gave our today.
Those that never learn from history will always repeat it.
