Hello everyone,

Today the paint fading is discussed. According to many modellers, this step is the start of weathering. It gives more contrast and  used look to the model.

Before fading, I applied two filters on the model. Colors are chosen compared with the base color. Filters was often confused with washes. It's definitely not the same technique and the expecting result is totally different.
Filters is a highly more diluted enamel or oil mix than washes. And they are applied on the whole areas.
You must wait  about 4 hours (for enamel filter) between to  filters.

When filters are dry, I deposite small oil paints dots on every areas. Then I blend the oil colors using a round or flat brush soaked with thinner (with oil you can use enamel thinner or turpentine but avoid commercial white spirit in big bottles). The brush movements when perform the blending should be from up to down on vertical surfaces, by picking on horizontal one.
You process the fading until the effect seems good.

Let it dry for almost a day.
Before washes, I airbrush a thin layer of satin varnish. That way, I am sure the washe (diluted with enamel thinner) will not spoil the fading work.
For now, I use a dark wash of oil paints (asphalte + burnt sienna). I say " for now" because some other washes may be applied at the "dust stage". The wash is applied on specifics location like in this case around the bolt and inside lines if structure.

A long long (well very long I guess) paint chipping await and will appear in the next update.
Have a good (holy)day!
