They're Not a Powder and They're Not a Chalk, They ARE Industrial!
Using Doctor Ben's Industrial Weathering Pigments®
As a single component of the Doctor Ben's Weathering Products®, the Industrial Weathering Pigments are an even more powerful tool in creating a realistic Model. Not a powder, not a chalk, the Doctor Ben's Industrial Weathering Pigments are very easily applied using a soft, but stiff, brush. However, be careful, a little bit goes a very long way!
I've been using the Doctor Ben's Industrial Weathering Pigments to tint Hydrocal for years. Just a 1/4 teaspoon make a whole lot of difference when tinting white Hydrocal to an earth tone color. Very cool! These are all great products and as we get more images we'll get them posted here as soon as possible!
The Doctor Ben's Weathering products work best in conjunction with other Doctor Ben's Weathering Products as well as competitors' products--Hey, why not?!

Are you ready for some weathering?
For example, read & view the following information:
OK, you caught me, I didn't exactly follow the instructions on the model to the left. The tattered warehouse door is quite a bit distressed. The very first thing that the instructions are going to tell you to get is Floquil Driftwood. Unfortunately, it isn't made anymore, but not to worry, you can now buy (at right) from our Ebay Store the very same Aged Driftwood that I've been using to build FSM kits for years as well as the Instant Age, Realistic Rust and Fine Scale Nail Hole Tool, too!
You may notice in this image that this original Fine Scale Miniatures MacKenzie Milling kit didn't come with stone walls, but wood painted to look like concrete (Aged Driftwood, too). I created my walls long ago from an FSM Barongould's Tannery walls when they weren't so expensive. But not to worry, you can create these same wall sections using Doctor Ben's Baby Building Blocs (link to the right) & I will even tell how to make a mold of the BB walls you create yourself if you need!
|At left is an image showing our Realistic Weathering Solutions. The Realistic Weathering Solutions are ready-to-use with no preparation necessary and all that is required is an ordinary hobby brush and your active imagination. |
Of course, if you can't imagine what a weathering boxcar looks like, do like me. I take a daily drive to the Post Office and invariably I always get stuck waiting for the train to pass. So I finally got clever and remembered to bring a camera.
So, you be the judge, just how realistic do our weathering products look to you? And if you have been to the National Narrow Gauge Conventions you will have seen me demonstrate just how very easy to use these products actually are. You will find both of these Realistic Weathering Solutions and many other great Doctor Ben's products in our Store!
|I get more questions about how I created the weathering in this image than most any other image. Honestly, it is VERY easy. I start out by painting the castings (metal, wood, resin, it doesn't matter) a flat black or black primer. I then wash the entire surface with our Doctor Ben's Aged Driftwood (a replacement for Floquil Driftwood) and after the Aged Driftwood dries, I use Sharpie markers to color in the details (be sure to use permanent markers-anything else will fade over time). |
I then use the Doctor Ben's Micro Blaster with Instant Age and spray the entire surface. When this is about dry, I come back with our Doctor Ben's Industrial Weathering Pigments and brush on Rust, and Dust and Soot and whatever else is open. That's it, I promise! You will find all of these mentioned products and many other great Doctor Ben's products in our Store!
|The short version of how the building in the image to the left was created is just like above, I start out by painting the castings (metal, wood, resin, it doesn't matter) a flat black or black primer. I then wash the entire surface with our Doctor Ben's Aged Driftwood (a replacement for Floquil Driftwood) and allow the Aged Driftwood to dry for 24 hours. |
I begin using one of the seven Doctor Ben's Industrial Weathering Pigments (#1109 RED in this case) by dipping the 1/4" round brush in my small container of water (or rubbing alcohol is you prefer to work faster) to wet the brush. With the wet brush stick the tip of the brush about 1/4" or just enough to pick up the Weathering Pigment on the tip of the brush. Now move the brush over to a non-porous surface (I use the underside of the Weathering Pigment product cap) and swish around to mix the water with the Weathering Pigment color so that it is mixed very well. Now scrape just a bit off of the brush and dragging the brush horizontally across the wall section (parallel to the direction that the bricks are running) in short, staggered strokes of about 3-5 bricks long and no more than 3 bricks high. I do this with a few more colors including one of the Doctor Ben's Industrial Weathering Pigment browns and viola, we have a finished brick building.
Really, it is that easy. There are more detailed instructions listed withy our Doctor Ben's Industrial Weathering Pigments we have in our Store! And by the way, the signage is using Avery Office labels and Photoshop. Do you like?
