    Adding a dirty look to vehicles

    This is something I tried with a jeep I recently made. I wanted a look that said "I've been useed and abused." So I bought some rust colored paint and put it arround the bottom edges of everything and a little in corners (where you put it is up to you) Then I got some flat Enamel Military Brown paint. It was a little lighter than normal brown. I poold some in the lid of the container and dipped my brush into water, then in the paint. This thinned it out a bit. I painted it on, lightly, a section and then before it dried wipped it of with a rag. This smeared it and made it look less brushed on. After applying paint everywhere I wanted to look like mud splatters, I sprayed a ver light coat of a spry on adheisive and sprinkled dirt over that. Blow off all the exess dirt and fix it on their with a dull coat spry. Finnished result looks a little like this:

    Thank you. I was at the hobby shop the other day and picked up a container of Scene Master Ground Cover: dark brown. I'm playing arround with it to add the look of dirt to... well, everything. Clothes, weapons, vehicles, figures, and whatever ealse I can find.

    another thing you might want to try is mixing sand or flour into your paint. Dab it on and you get clumps of mud!

    Theres links to how this looks in this post, scroll up to see it on my white scout car too.
