4078Re: Diorama photolink - painting method
- Mar 16, 2005Hi Peter,
The method i used on the wood is:
First shape and mechanicly weather the balsa- or other modelling
wood. Sand it down really well with very fine paper.
Then paint it white with thinned (milky) acrylic paint. Let it dry.
Maybe if it isn't totally white do it again. First gently sand away
any upstanding woodfibres or splinters. They tend to get up when the
wood gets wet.
Then wash with different shades of brown and black oilpaint.
The oils must be heavily thinned with a good thinner.
Start with light (yellow)browns for new wood, light brown, darker
brown and in the end eventually wash with black for weathered wood.
Wipe away excess thinned paint with a cloth.
You have to experiment with colours, thinning etc..
Then highlight the planks and beams or sleepers.
Very lightly sand again with very fine paper, just enough to make the
white undercoat visable at (the) edges. Be carefull: if the original
wood comes through the effect is ruined.
Plastic wood imitation can be painted in the same way.
Thanks and regards,
