With my recent forgeworld purchase I received a set of the weathering powers. I have used charcoal before, as well as pastels for weathering, but this is my first attempt at using the real stuff. Initially I added acrylic thinner to the powder and dappled it on, but towards the end I ust put the powders directly on with a damp brush. I like the way the black soot turned out, and I like some of the rust. It is a little hard to imagine a unit wanting to use a tank that looks like this. I am considering adding rust, soot, and the light and dark soot to my IG motor pool.
Incidentally this last photo is the side of the turret that I accidentally sprayed white after grabbing the wrong can of spray paint. I rubbed most of it off, but the transfers took a pretty big hit.'
I was planning on using the Oni Aquila scale for rating the powders, but I am just not sure about them yet. Any thoughts from other raw pigment users?
