Koktebel diorama blog

Now it's time to do the ground cover..

So now when i have the time I will certainly prepare this '"the 10 capital sins of diorama making'" bit; buf for the moment here is the theory:

Now here is the first layer of paint applied to the fornt part of the boat -no weathering nor pigments nor whatever

not much time left this week-end but I managed to get the boat painted -though without any pigments and rust.

Applying the rust #1

Now I applied the rust my way, but this time I used a far greaterrange of colours so that i could have high-highlights and dark shadows.
So the trick is to underpaint the metal bit in a rusty base colour, while also preshading the right parts with a blacker shade...

Applying the rust #2

... Then you take your cup, of whatever you use to mix your paint and you put some thinned black acrylic paint, as well as black, red, burnt sienna and yellow pigments.
