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!
