    ? Floquil Railroad colors ?

    Just bought some paints and stuff.

    Among them what was presented to be a weathering agent:

    Floquil Railroad Colors--"Dust"

    It seems very watery and my only seems to have dullcoated my test pieces (Dragon helmet & Formative jeep)

    Is anyone familiar with this product and could tell me if this is its normal traits or if I'm not using correct or if it seems defective ?

    Thanks
    Jim

    Re: ? Floquil Railroad colors ?

    I bought these in the pen form back when I used to actually bother weathering and I really liked them. However, I found that they were very difficult if not used solely on uniforms for a mud/dirt/grime effect. I tried them on plastic surfaces but was unimpressed with how they came out. I truly think that you should just ignore what they are labelled as and just use them as colors in the way that you see fit. I did find the chiseled tips nice for detail application, but not over technical in their appearance.
