about Doctor Ben's Weathering Stain Products
Ready-To-Use Weathering Stain for Wood, Plastic, Hydrocal®,
Metal & Much More - 4oz Jar
years Doctor Ben’s (aka Richard E. Bendever) has kept these
versatile Weathering Stains to himself. So when that once famous—now
defunct—Floquil® Flo-Stain product line stains often going for more
than a $100 a bottle on eBay; Doctor Ben’s decided to test the
market with first the Floquil® Driftwood and when successful, more
stains would slowly begin to be offered. That has been several years
now and boy have things changed!
Ever since 1991 we have offered a non-petroleum replacement for the
long defunct Floquil Flo-Stains© products; beginning with the
Driftwood Stain that has been recommended in the manufacture of
Fines Scale Miniatures kits (George Sellios) for more than forty
years. Many thousands of jars of Doctor Ben's Aged Driftwood
Weathering Stain have been sold with equally thousands upon
thousands of satisfied customers in literally every modeling scale.
Not everyone sees the "original" Floquil Driftwood as a true color
representation of how they see that the color of Driftwood should
be. An overwhelming number of customers have asked Doctor Ben's to
consider having a 'mossy green' driftwood color. Well, even though
this has happen quite by accident; once again we "Grow Our Product
Line" with a Weathering Stain that many customers agree as
an excellent choice. We hope that you will agree, too!
are you like the thousands of hobbyists before you, who became tired
of the costly, smelly petroleum based weathering and painting
products that seemingly evaporated overnight? Do you like paying
$5.00 or much more for a tiny eye-dropper bottle of these very same
products? Good news for you! Doctor Ben’s has now brought to you a
line of easy-to-use, environmentally-friendly, finishing and
weathering stains in four ounce re-sealable jars that are Color Fast
and are Ready-To-Use when you are!
This product works best in conjunction with other Doctor Ben's
Weathering Products as well as competitor products. We recommend
Realistic Rust on top of Doctor Ben's
Instant Age and vise versa. As we describe in our Doctor
How-To #1 booklet, to create the ultimate modeling realism, consider
turning your model upside down allowing gravity to pull the residue
to the top of the protrusions. This way when you turn it right side
up, the residue is not running down towards the bottom of the models
and the effect looks just like real life.
