Instant Waethering Decals, classic and modern
I have invented instant weathering decals in early 2012. It was a logical consequence of the woodgrain decal development process. Achieving cool results by involving a media we are familiar with. Pretty short story, but that was it. First I did a few tests and combined these weathering decals with painting methods.
Lets check a few pics:
It depends on what you wanna do, the principle is the same: We pre-paint a backdrop and we apply an effect using a decal. Thats it.
Ok. Now lets find out a general way how to be successful with the stuff.
Its as simple as this:
This little slide show tells you how how to use the decal on a AFV subject
Sure you do.
Because that´s what you do all the time:
Use a decal for the "unpaintable job".
It doesn´t matter if we have a national insignia, a Graffiti or a weathering effect: It´s always about the "difficult-to-paint" sort of job, right?
All right. Once we paint our model and once we applied our decals to it, it can look like this:
This is a kewl point to start from, isn´t it? You are on the safe side now and you can leave it as it is or combine it with your own style. That´s where the magic begins my friend....;-)
We cannot sell you magic. The magic is within you. We just can give you a little support on your way to discover your very own footprint.
Nothing less and nothing more.
Uschi: Make things easy.
Right here we have IWD1 and IWD2 in an overlaying effect.
What you see is "live".
There aint no photoshop effects or cheats like that. Setting the contrast a bit is all we did on the pics below.
It´s within you....its your style.......we just deliver:
The point to start from!
