Model Wash is the perfect product for reproducing the
weathering of surfaces exposed to harsh climatic conditions.
For armour, vehicles, planes, ships, figures and war-game
figures. All surfaces exposed to sun, wind and dust, rain and snow, experience
a change in colour, a loss of intensity, a dulling and general fading which
however is not even or overall. For the model painter, these changes in colour
are very difficult to reproduce, and to achieve these effects on a model,
washes or filters are the perfect solution.
The washes are always needed to blend the edges of the colours
on a model painted in various camouflage shades. The colours can also be mixed
together to achieve further variations of shade and can be used with airbrush
or brush, according to the model and the effect desired. Model Wash can be
mixed with pigments to achieve a wide range of such as oil and flaked rust, mud, earth, dust, moss, etc.
and when mixed with acrylic colours, they further help achieve the impact of
heavy wear and weathering. The washes have been formulated with a modified
acrylic resin so that the superficial tension is similar to that of the
traditional solvent based washes and filters, but with the advantage of working
with a water based medium. Average drying time is around 20 minutes. If several
layers of wash are to be applied, it is best to wait around 40 minutes between
applications. Painting tools are cleaned with water.
