Today I had a bit of time so I weathered the wood with ink+IPA washes several different layers to build it up. I think it needs some more grimy look then some dry brushing.

Compare with the new wood look, better but I want it to look older

I put some of the panels into the Ferric Chloride solution, since it was so cold (~70f at the most) the reaction was slow which meant I had a lot of control over the effect.


Then testing the weathering...I lightly and randomly sprayed the shiny side with some X19 then stippled on some Vallejo Model Color Track Primer as a base for the rust. The printed side will be a bit more difficult to deal with since there will be no shiny metal showing.


Then the rust itself, Lifecolor's Rust Set is my go-to, a bit of clean up maybe, using such thinned paint makes it hard to be precise.



Here you can see the effect on one of the corroded panels, what's your opinion...OTT?

Cool stuff !! [smile]

"I'm going to play around with weathering with Ferric Chloride (which is what that PCB etcher is) but it may not work all that well since the reaction depends on heat which is in short supply in the basement this time of year..."

Candles under the pan mate !! [biggrin]

Thanks guys! I just hope it looks as good on the shed, I'm a bit worried about it being slightly out of scale...

I'm going to need more cans cut up though, because I'm going to go with a tin shed, mainly because I think weathering the metal will be easier than aging that much wood, I will do a test fitting to make up my mind for sure.

"Candles under the pan mate !! [biggrin] " Give it a shot, Paul and let me know how it goes [wink] I'm kicking myself because at school they had a lab stirrer/hot plate that blew a fuse and instead of repairing it they got a new one and binned it, I almost snagged it and repaired it myself but at the time I had no use for it. And I actually thought about a Coke bath until I remembered they sell that crap in Aluminum cans lol. Actually, from what I've read Coke cans may be better to use because they are slightly thinner...

It brings up a point though...they have to put some kind of coating on the raw metal to stop it reacting with the contents, this also interferes with the Ferric Chloride. It's ok for this scenario since I'm most interested in having the bottoms of the panels rotted out, and the FeCl3 attacks the raw edges best. I am wondering if a thicker foil or pure Al sheet can be sourced, it would also eliminate the faff of cutting up the cans which is a truly miserable chore!

The effects are excellent. I sometimes buy coconut water in a can which is significant thicker than the coke can.

I need that white powered effect that comes from the zinc corroding, which I think I can get with some heavily thinned acrylic paint if I overdo it a bit and get the tide mark effect. I did go back and add some verdigris to some areas also as the zinc sometimes goes this color too, you can see it in the first photo. I ran short of painted panels, I need about 15 more to finish the roof, so another batch is ready for paint. I am really leaning toward a wood shed because I think if I went with corrugated on the sides too it would not look as interesting (plus the thought of painting that many more is a bit overwhelming)


the white on the one panel was a mistake, some ca was needed to tack that panel down and it leaked out, I kind of like the look...

about halfway done

Mainly this is a mix of the white color of the can itself, raw aluminum, xf19 and gray Stynylrez to keep it random...I think a flat coat and some pigments will also tie it together a bit.

But that's it for a while tonight, because my work space has been overrun

Today I made some more progress on shed construction. 

Finished off the roof and did some more weathering. Halfway thru or so I realized I was painting both sides for no reason, the inside will really not be visible so I stopped. I feel like I need a tetanus shot after painting all this rust!




Then pressed on with the siding. I dry-fit a side with the corrugated sheet and it just looked too uniform so I did decide to go with wood, with the added benefit that I think this will be quicker to paint as well.
Cut a large sheet of balsa into strips then cut to length into boards then started at the bottom and worked up overlapping each by a couple of mm. Cleaned up excess glue as best I could, not too worried about the inside faces though.






I want this to be very heavily weathered, almost like the farmer used reclaimed materials to build from...that's why I went so rusty on the roof. I will start with the ink washes then some dry brushing and detail painting. The siding will be almost grey/white from being bleached by the sun, slightly different from the now finished framing wood.

I'm still deciding on how to finish off the back wall, wood or steel...I also have a few more details in mind I need to try to scratchbuild.

Jason,
that is really looking the part for your diorama. you are the master of roof rust corrugated metal. Any thoughts about leaving the back open like it is? Maybe place a few random damaged boards as if the wind blew through over time?
