|Weathering mix and creosote black are both the same colour. Weathering mix is Hunterlines original formula.|
Here is what I do to emulate weathered wood. I begin with Hunterline stain Creosote followed by a coat of Floquil Grime. At one time Floquil made some nice stains and I used driftwood to weather wood. Floquil also had a stain walnut which I would apply after driftwood if a darker finish was required.
Today as a variation after the grime is applied some areas which would require dark weathering some Floquil black is lightly brushed over that area followed by a wash of thinner. If colouring is to be added the colour is added followed by a wash of thinner. I go back and forth between the tones and washes all while the walls are still wet. I sometimes need to add more grime through the process nearing the end...George Dutka
|On my long barn a tone of Flquil red is seen in the structure. This is the side that would face the harshest of the weather.|
|This Branchline model I followed photos I had to get a prototype look.|
|The weathered side of this Northeastern Models barn kit shows hints of red.|
|Although there is a lot of red on this wall it is applied the same way. This technique is one I used before I began using Bragdon powders and PanPastel. Although the results now are similar with PanPastels I really like this approach of washes much more.|
