PART 5 : Weathering-2 (FINAL)
———————————————————————————————————

5-1
Continuing our with our weathering, I mix some brown and black to make a darker brown paint.

———————————————————————————————————

5-2
I paint with this closer in to edges and seams where I’ve sponged on my lighter “rust” .

———————————————————————————————————

5-3
Paint and erase until you are satisfied. Take your time, this little guy isn’t going anywhere.

———————————————————————————————————

5-4
With our sponge work completed, I decided to hit the bertie with a little yellow to closer match his big brother.
Repeat Step 4-2~Step5-4  until you are satisfied with the result.

———————————————————————————————————

5-5
Here is the what the final painted rust looked like before the final step.

5-6
I then use an airbrush and hit the bertie with a little clear flat matte coat to protect my work so far.

———————————————————————————————————

5-7
Now I want to go back and wash the grooves with black so the details really pop.
It’s a pretty easy process. Just dilute some black with thinner and run your brush over the various grooves and other areas you want to be darker.
I also painted a little oil dripping from the eye hole using the same method. You can also dab a little dark paint at random points of your figure for more variety in his paint texture and weathering.

5-8
Finally! My completed Mini Deep Powder Bertie!
