So I have bought some Vallejo pigments which is fine, but I had no idea how to apply it properly. I mean OK, put it on the tank but how much and how dry etc. Here are three AFVs which were not weathered before (the others made after these have a strong drybrush on the tracks/lower hull) so I experimented on them a little.
The first one was the KV-1. The one which the Revell enamel paint ruined pretty much. I started the work at insufficient light and it looked all right until next morning when the pigment fixer dried completely and left an enormous amount of dust and mud on the poor vehicle. Fortunately a layer of varnish removed most of it, and it's still better than it was before.
Now the other two are a tad different, I was more careful with the amount of pigment used (the 38t still looks like a mud wrestler though). I also applied a wash made of water, pigment and pigment fixer which in the end looked just the way I wanted - dust settled on the AFV.
I have spent all the weekend painting vehicles so these will be featured during the next week.
