Doctor Ben's "How-To #3: Weathering & Painting Using Pigments"
There are lost of folks who offer powders and say that they are for weathering models. Unfortunately, they don't explain what they are and how to use them. Although Doctor Ben's has only offered the "dry" weathering pigments for the past ten years or so, the Doctor Ben's Industrial Weathering Pigments have been a key ingredient in the Doctor Ben's Weathering Solutions & Stains for more than thirty years. This Blog Post is the complete Doctor Ben's "How-To #3: Weathering & Painting Using Pigments" booklet in digital format. The information in this How-To booklet will provide amazing results when using Doctor Ben's Weathering Pigments, but may not be as effective when trying to use "weathering powders", because, well, they're just not Doctor Ben's.

Even before 1988, when I first began conducting NMRA clinics on how to create these original products, folks have told me time and time again how very realistic my modeling techniques are.

In this How-To #1 booklet I have described just exactly I apply some of the most user friendly products that you will ever find. You can take these very same products, and with no previous experience you can recreate the very same techniques, with the very same results—in just minutes.
