Paint Your (Flat) Wagon

I have (finally) painted the flat wagons I built in January this year. Last time they were on the blog they were bear plasticard.

I like painting on lots of different layers. It’s really easy to do with acrylic paints and leads to some nice effects. Perhaps I’m over complicating things but here’s what I did:

  1. Primer Citadel Coraz White (light Grey)
  2. Paint chassis Humbrol Dirty Black mixed with a small amount Citadel Ulthuan Grey
  3. Rough coat of Citadel Zandri dust – semi dry brush of top, wet brush underneath
  4. Touch up black on chassis
  5. Wash of dilute Humbrol Dirty Black
  6. Dry brush chassis and wagon in Citadel Ulthuan Grey
  7. Dry brush chassis and  wagon Citadel Zandi Dust
  8. Dry brush chassis and  wagon Citadel Steel Legion Drag
  9. Dry brush chassis with rust mix (Citadel XV88 mixed with small amount of Citadel Dunbar Brown)
  10. Wash with dilute Humbrol Dirty Black – three times

I rather like the end result.
