maschinen krieger - Rainbow Egg/ Wave New Fireball- 5. Chips, ink and oil paint.

 I'm satisfied with the chipping and overall weathering, so I'm about done with it.

Often I'm asked about weathering and when and where do I begin it. There was a time when I painted the kit up and then weather it with several oil and enamel washes, stains and modulations. Then I started "pre weathering" with oil and enamal washes. Now I begin weathering when I lay down the base or first coat of colour using lacquers and inks. Toward the end I use oil paints (when working with white base colour) and Copic Marker inks, but I don't use them as washes. It's a process and meant to built up the layers.
