    Thanks, Andrew. This makes sense -- it was probably the Bragdon kind that the guy at George's Trains was showing me (I couldn't remember the various brand names). Cheers, Rob

    I was out of chaluk and needed to do some weathering. I grabed my daughters eye make up, it comes in all colors, and went to work with it. Came out great, only had to do 1 time and sealed it with clear matt. Stuff works great!

    Makeup weathering

    If you use the makeup for weathering, can you still dull coat it?

    I agree with the use of make up. Lots of colour range, cheap, variety of brushes included. Easy to apply as well. I do have a concern about the results of any with oils in them, but I am assuming a proper coat of Dullcoat will seal them in and keep it looking good.

    I have used mascara to simulate grease & grime -- it works very well.
    If you want to simulate mud, as in splattered mud as would be say, under the fenders of a car or truck driven thru mud & having little chunks & splatters stuck to it, powdered tempra paint mixed with plaster of paris flicked on a dampened surface with a tooth brush gives an awsome effect. A coat of dull coat when dry seals it.

    Here is an example of how that looks. Let me know what you think of it.
