I had hoped to finish it this weekend...remember...a "quick, dirty little build", or something like that was what I had in mind. I'm not sure thats possible

Ok, ok.....they're ordered.

Thanks guys, but...I've never "dusted" a model before, at least I dont think I have. I hit it with some white pastel dust here and there to lighten some areas and then gave it a shot of matte clear. Still working on some details, but what is really involved in "dusting"?

by dry clay do you mean real clay dust KuK, or is that a paint color you use? Would'nt you still want to give it a topcoat of flat clear after that, to seal the dust coat? The problem I've had with the flat coat is that it takes away the feeling of dust.

Yeah, I've got pastels...use them alot, but again, I run into problems once I give it a shot of flat clear. I'll admit I've never used a carrier to apply pigments before...I will have to try that.
For this I took your advice...I took some dry dirt from my yard and sifted it through a super-fine mesh to get just the dust. I sprayed the model down with water then sprinkled the dust over it, then swooshed it around with a brush. Then I added some heavier dirt with water to the fenders and transom area and let some collect in the nooks and crannys. Once it had dried I sprayed it with flat clear again to hold the dirt in place. Hopefully it stays. I think I over did it a little, but I think it looks good. also trying out a new photo-taking setup. Thanks KuK!
