I haven’t done much painting or sculpting since Christmas. But I decided to get back to the workbench and complete a few projects. Spring is so rainy and cold this year, it is a perfect time for model building 🙂
In this post, you will find photos of my (now) completed sci-fi crates.
Completing this project was quite quick:
it took an evening to cut small pieces of massonite, glue crates and various scrap pieces to simulate random “junk”, and prime the whole thing in black.
The next day, I painted some details and added decals (about 3 hours of work).
And this morning, I completed the weathering by doing a dark brown wash, followed by a dry-brushing of pale grey to pick up the details. I added some rust by “stippling” different shades of browns and orange. Finally, the pieces were coated with 2 coats of mat varnish to protect them.
Here are some close-ups. Enjoy!
