Painting Oxidized Bronze

Hello everyone!

Since I was asked on the colors used to paint the bronze plaques on the T-34 base I decided to make a short SBS on how I did it.

First I want to point that this is only one of the many approaches that can be used to make this effect. I have found this technique easy to use and the results quite convincing. My best suggestion is to go ahead and experiment until you find a technique you are comfortable with.

Here is the list of the colors needed. They are all acrylics.
From Vallejo acrylics:
1.Tinny Tin
2.Brassy Brass
3.Bright Bronze
4.Bronze Green
5.German Fieldgrey WWII
6.Turquoise Glaze (from Citadel Color)



I will be using this fantasy warrior’s shield to demonstrate the technique.



I applied a coat of Flat Black primer.



Next I applied drybrushing using Tinny Tin. Make sure you cover a lot of the raised surfaces with this first drybrush.



Once dry I applied a wash using Bronze Green. This will represent the characteristic green patina that forms on bronze when it oxidizes.



Once the wash is dry a second drybrush is applied, this one with Brassy Brass. This coat is lighter than the first drybrush.



Next is a second wash. This time using German Fieldgrey.



Once dry the final drybrush was made using Bright Bronze and making sure you pick all the raised areas.



Finally I applied a thin coat of Turquoise glaze over the piece.



There you have it, oxidize bronze.

Dave
