hey guys, I've recently bought IA: Model Masterclass Vol. 1, and I must say, it is amazing. definitely worth the 57$ investment.
Rather than running out and buying this and wait weeks for it, I decided I'd be clever, and make my own
So, I've decided to make my own weathering powders.
on with the show:
|Step one: Materials|
An exacto knife [or any sharp knife, I suppose]
A small tub
An artists' chalk
A piece of paper towel
I assume you'll need to buy a little tub for 50c and I did buy my pastel for 1.50$.
|Step 2: cut|
Cut off a sizeable chunk of your pastel or chalk, and put it in your tub.
If it takes up more than 60% of the space in your tub, it may overflow. Be warned.
|Step 3: wrap|
Wrap the clod of paper up in the middle of the paper, so that it is squarely in the middle. wrap both the sides into the centre.
|Step 4: remove chunks|
As it says, remove all the little chunks that will be there. use the ball or point of your hammer to do this, or even just your knife.
|Step 5: collect|
And, now you have your very own weathering powder!
