Paint types
« on: Jan 23, 2017, 05:30 PM »
So I have a bunch of Rustoliam spray paints, but I was hoping someone could recommend some paints that I could use for weathering or painting detail with a paintbrush.

Cheers

Most people use acrylic paint to weather. Black, browns, and tans are good color's to use for weathering. As for detail painting, I guess it depends on how detailed you want to be. You could use spray paint still if you mask off areas or you could use acrylic for finer details.

"Testors" modeling paint works well and is available at any local hobby or craft store.

I use cheap acrylic paint for my weathering.  Blacks, brown, tan, burnt sienna for rust.  I've even used artist charcoal.  I'll rub it on sand paper over the area and then smudge it in.  It does great for "carbon scoring".  Then always seal it with a clear coat.

I think you can use spray paint to paint over the details. Just take a solid and thin brush

Spray paints have a lot of binders in them that will absolutely destroy a paint brush in no time at all (I learned this the hard way). If you’re going to brush on spraypaint, use a disposable brush.
