I tried something new on my build. First steps like you already did. After a clear coat to protect the paint I sprayed on some hairspray (straight from the can) and sprinkled salt on the wet hairspray. The salt is nicely sticky for that. After 24 hours I sprayed on the final color, not to wet because you don't want to melt the salt. After an other 24 hours you can rinse of the salt with water to reveal the rust and basic color. Additionally you can remove more of the top coat with some water and a stiff brush as you want. Worked nice for me, maybe try it on a scratch piece first ;-)

Hi Fabian, I've been following your build and that is exactly the effect I'm looking for.  When adding the salt, do you put it everywhere or selectively where you want the rust to show?  also, in my head this sounds like a silly question but, does it matter what type of salt you use?  is regular table salt fine?  Thanks for spelling out the timing of the whole process as well, most of the time the process is described much faster with less detail.

Once I get the clear coats on I'll give it a try.

Thanks

The salt is preventing you top coat to get a grip on your model. This means that you can decide where you want to show the rust or base color. Of course there's a randomness factor as you can't place the salt very precisely, but that's adding to the natural effect in my opinion. I used "natural" salt and grinded it fine so I had finer and more coarse crystals to play with... the finer the salt the finer the chipping effect. But don't worry to much, it's surprisingly easy to use. Have fun :-)

Hi, it's been awhile but I finally got a good clear coat and I'm ready to try the hairspray and salt technique.  I searched my wifes cabinet for some hairspray but none so I had to go out and buy some.

Question for Fabian, in post #31 you wrote, once the paint layer over the hairspray/salt is dry you "rinse off the salt with water".  I hate to be picky about the details but are you rinsing the model under the tap or using a wet brush to remove the salt?

Hopefully I'll be putting this to the test tonight, I'll have pictures if all goes well.

Thanks

Tim

Hi Tim, don’t worry about asking questions :-). And yes, I rinsing the model infer the tap is what I’ve done. Just a little water, no need to open the tap full blast. You can use a big soft brush to help the process going, just be gentle and all should be fine. Good luck!

So I gave the hairspray and salt method a try.  2 days ago I did sprayed the hairspray and applied the salt, then as per Fabian guidance, I let it dry for 24 hours.  Then yesterday I sprayed my top coat which wasn't just a lighter shade of the original colours.  The top coat is my view of a post apocalyptic vehicles camouflage.  While spraying I used very low air pressure and tried to use strokes that would recreate spray paint out of a can at 1/35th scale.

Tonight I will remove the salt and see what the results look like, I'll post more pics tomorrow.

I removed the salt last night and I think I went a little over the top with the salt combined with the fact that I used regular table salt, explains the result.  Having said that, I like the finish.  Looks like it was showered with acid or something. 

What do you guys think?????

Next step, finish painting all the weapons, attach the weapons and skiis and then move on to the diorama base.

Stay tuned.....

Looks like it worked! I imagine post apocalyptic as very worn, aged. Thanks for sharing your process!

Another long break since my last post on this build and, to be honest, I haven't accomplished all that much.  I was able to attach the skiis and I've started to add the weapons to the vehicle.  I have a few more weapons to add to the top but here is how it looks for now.....

Also, my original plan was the cut off part of the canopy and have an open top cockpit, as seen in the first pic below...... but then I grabbed one of the pieces I cut off and I think it looks better, a little more hot rod looking.  Neither has been attached yet.

Next step is to start on the diorama base, should be fun.

Thanks
