Doctor Ben's Rustic Barn Red Weathering Stain & Weathering Solution Charts
A number of years ago and quite a few Weathering Stains & Weathering Solution less than we have now, one of our customers created the Weathering Stain Chart that you see in each of the Weathering Stain descriptions. And last year we announced that we had received a number of requests for an update. Although it's long over due to create a "New" color chart including the new addition of two brand new Weathering Stains, we've just not had the time. Anyone interested in helping?
The new chart will be formatted just like the original chart with a few changes. The chart will start with Aged Driftwood (#1097) and eventually end up with the two new Weathering Stains; Timberline Green (#1065) & Faded Slate Gray (#1064).
What we would like is for the *new* stain chart to be just as is shown in the original chart beginning on the left with three (3) coats of the color; then two (2) coats of the color in the middle; and then a "wash" coat on the right. In case you do not remember or you not yet read one of my Blogs, Clinic Handouts, or Scale Model Masterpieces kit Instructional Booklets (including How-To Booklet #2), the "wash" technique is created by dipping the tip of the 1/4' round paint brush into the stain or solution and then applying that combination to the surface of the detail and/or casting an/or wood and/or plastic-well, you get it, right? Obviously, it was need someone who already has most if not all of the Doctor Ben's Weathering Stains--maybe multiple of folks could send images of the stains that they have? Any assistance would be a huge help!
A bit of information for those who do not know or have forgotten, Doctor Ben's Stains, Solutions and Pigments are "color-fast" (sunlight & ultraviolet lights do not fade them), our Weathering Stains are not thick like hobby paints so the detail is not lost by apply another coat.
