This often overlooked and forgotten detail will bring a great deal of realism and believablity to a structure when properly modeled.
Doctor Ben's Weathering Stains were used to finish the details in this How-To Tutorial.
1) Prepare the casting for staining. If necessary, sand or file the bottom flat and remove of repair any minor blemishes. Feel free to add addition distress areas to the casting
2) Stain the casting starting from the deepest recesses outward.
Begin with the base color for the walls. Depot Buff #1068 was used for this How-To Technique.
3) Next, carefully stain the trim (the next layer up and out) by letting the stain flow from your brush onto the raised surfaces. Knotty Walnut #1087 was used for this How-To Technique.
4) The last step is to paint the roof and it's outer edges that overhang the structure trim. Durty Black #1091was used for this How-To Technique.
A light relief wash of Instant Age #1152 will help bring out the castings texture. And don't forget to splash a bit of Realistic Rust #1150 onto the door knob and some of the nail holes.
