Last time I used hairspray to make battle damage, but we can also use another house products to make weathering on the model. Today I will show you how to get paint chip, using kitchen salt.
What we need:
- kitchen salt, for better effects use this with various sizes of crystals
- cold water in cup and hot water in faucet
- airbrush loaded with paint or base coat spray (in whatsoever color, Tamiya has good color spray pallet)
- brush and paints (black and red to make rust effect)
Just like before, apply black coat and about 3 layers of red paint to get rust effect.
Using you brush, apply cold (about 20*C) water (like on picture, not to fat layer, because salt can melt) on model.
When miniature is wet, throw on it some salt. Don't worry if you applied too much salt, you can remove overflow with dry brush or your finger. Than wait about 30 minutes to model can run dry.
Using airbrush or spray apply armor color. I used white Vallejo Air paint:
first 2 layers, next 3 layers, final 2 layers
Sorry for bad pictures
Wait about one day (if you use airbrush) or couple of hours (if you use spray), paint must be very dry. Then take you model to kitchen or bathroom and put it under faucet, and turn on hot water. It's takes some time, about 3 minutes, but it depends of salt kind. If you're sure that all salt melted, dry miniature (just wait or use hairdryer).
