Vallejo environmental textured rust.

Recommended Posts

I’ve always had a hard time replicating rust. I was at the hobby store last week and saw this on the shelf, and decided to give it a try. It’s amazing. When I painted the base, and the turbo chargers, I shot it through my airbrush with no thinning. All you have to do is turn up the pressure a little. After everything was dry, I dry brushed everything with silver. When I prepped the parts, all I did was prime them with Tamiya primer. This is absolutely the easiest stuff to use. Give it a try if you haven’t already.

Regards

Chris

It does look good. Thanks for posting this mini review.

I knew a modeler who used actual rust when rusting parts. He would soak a steel wool pad and let it rust; sometimes for days depending on what color rust he wanted (Light orange for fresh rust or dark brown for older rust). Then he would crush it into powder and apply it; sticking it in place with an overcoat of clear or dull.
