Has anyone ever tried MMP Weathering Powders? http://www.ww2modelmaker.com/mmppigs.htm . If so, will they work on fabric as well as plastic?

well it looks like its based for the 1/35 products, and since most 1/35 tanks,airplanes etc.. come in plastic, i think it might be able to work on 1/6 weapons and such. but i would think it would need to be sealed. as for cloth... you can try it but i would think it would do more harm than good.

Weathering powders in general are great for uniforms... Its essentially chalk weathering, but the chalk is already ground up, and you dont have to do it, and waste a blender doing it....

Hey Cree82,

I used the MMP weathering powders on my OSI bash. They work great!

Hey guys was wondering if this is the place to ask this question, does boiling the Unis in water give them that(worn out, broken in look), also heard something about soaking the Unis in Tea 4 that(darkened look) is this the way? Thanx in advance for your knowledge! Brian

Along the lines of weathering, how do you take off acyrlic paint used at times for weathering?
This is the water based paint and I want to get it off some head sculpts.
Thanks

Acetone or nail polish

The acetone won't damage the existing HS? I am curious to know because I would like to customize some of my HSs.:help:thanks
