The various products of the Weathering Effects range, all of them formulated with permanent pigments and waterbased acrylic resins, have been developed to represent the effects of time and weather on models and dioramas, so that they will look as once their originals in the field. This range of effects includes spilled fuel runnels, splashed mud, lichen and moss on wood, crushed grass stuck to the metal links of the chains of a tank,all the traces of wear and destruction on vehicles in harsh and hostile climate. By placing a vehicle in a realistic setting, at rest for a brief moment, we can tell a complete story about its history of past battles in foreign zones of war.
When a vehicle drives through muddy terrain, mud splashes are inevitable. The range of Splash Mud has been formulated so that by simply blowing air through the airbrush over a brush loaded with mud, from a short distance from the model and on the specific area, realistic splash effects will be spattered all over the model. Splash Mud can also be applied using a stiff brush or stick. The range includes six different kinds of mud, manufactured with natural pigments and waterbased acrylic resins, which dries to a slightly glossy finish which suggest the humid nature of the products. The product can also be splashed on the model with an airbrush by loading a regular brush with Splash Mud and projecting air against the brush towards the model.
