Oil Drips & Dried Mud on DKoK LR

It may be hard to tell, but I started this off tonight, by highlighting the edges of most of the raised edges with a mid tone mix between the dark sea green and the grey color. Once that was done I decided to give mud a try. I started with a light brown powder mixed with alcohol, and spritzed it onto the tank using my air brush. I followed the tan with FW dark earth. AK Interactive engine oil was then placed around each of the moving parts, and drips were allowed flow.

I am not sure how effective this is. It kind of looks like the tank is oozing oil to me. On the other hand, this is my first try with the technique. I really like how the glossy oil plays off of the textured mud. This application is bad, but you can bet I will use it on my titan pistons.

I wish I had a dozen of these extra LR pieces so I could try out more things in a single day. Thank goodness for simple green!


  1. Would this help or just cause an avalanche of bits?

  2. You can use white spirit to clean up some of the oil effect and moove it around some - though not sure how that would go for the portion over the pigments.

  3. I don't care what anyone says, I'm really liking this application.
