What order do you guys weather things?

Recommended Posts

Okay, doing a cockpit for a build. Most everything is painted and am at the point to start weathering. Problem is, i forgot the order i did things in. Do you wash, drybrush, flat coat? Do you drybrush, wash, flat coat? Is there another order? Sounds simple enough, but memory fails me, been burning brain cells for most of the night....SOS

Usually washes work better on a glossy surface and dry brushing works better on a flat surface.  I would paint, gloss coat, wash, flat coat, then dry brush.

 

K. Makes sense. Will do...such a basic procedure to forget. Thanks!!

Dave is spot on with his advice.  If you plan to show chips, scratches and wear using a silver pencil and/or pen, that is best done on a flat surface.  The silver pencil is very good at replicating wear and the pen for chipping and scratches.  I always use the pencil first than the pen.
