Doctor Ben's About Individual Doctor Ben's Weathering Stains in 4oz Jars

 The Doctor Ben's Weathering Stains are package in 4 ounce wide-mouth, resealable jars with lids that easily screw on and off just in case you knock it over and you don't end up with your Weathering Stain all over the workbench.

  At right is the Doctor Ben's How-To #2 "The ABCs of Staining Castings booklet. We wrote this booklet years ago when we first purchased the Thomas A. Yorke Enterprises Structure kit line because at the time there wasn't a lot around that aided modelers in staining & weathering the various castings. One thing that we missed out on including in this booklet is staining and weathering wood---duh!

  It looks like we'll need to write another How-To booklet: All About Modeling Wood. In the meantime, here is a quick and dirty three step process for applying Doctor Ben's Weathering Stains to wood. Step 1: Remove any fuzz from the wood with steel wool and for a rustic look, drag a Doctor Ben's Fine Scale Nail Hole Tool (#1492) sideways the direction of the grain to give the wood more character. Step 2: Lay Doctor Ben's the wood out on a sheet of newspaper or glass surface and stain all sides of the wood with Doctor Ben's Aged Driftwood (#1097) and allow to dry. For more character, consider using a brass brush on the Aged Driftwood and then applying a second stain color like the finish color for the application planned for this wood. Step 3: After the wood has been used to construct the model use a straight edge and the Doctor Ben's Fine Scale Nail Hole Tool in its correct application to create subtle rows of sunken nail heads and then apply a couple of "thinned" washes of Doctor Ben's Instant Age Weathering Solution (#1152). And this is our quick and dirty wood weathering technique. Now do you understand why we need to write another booklet?
