    This looks like something you could use to some old trains to make it look like there in the scrap yard.

    I did the same thing to a toy truck, but I used coffee instead. It looks like it’s covered in dirt and mud

    @LittleMonsterUSA1992 I have found if your presenting things to camera you need to over do the detail a touch, I see this all the time at work.

    Sure I cave some extreme examples here and that’s how I would present them to camera. If it was for a static display for personal viewing I would be be less aggressive with the detailing.

    I agree that w/ film work the stage/props need to be kinda OVERdone, scenically. But with the digital sharpness these days, something need be said about more detail. I know a few makeup artists that have to insert more detail simply b.c of the better cameras now.

    I have a bit of a sugguestion for the next mad bomber episode. You look like you would like to have some diversity amongst the different cherecters so here’s my idea. I was thinking if you have multiples of Ertl or Take A Long toys, take a whole bunch of action figures of different series and making a cast of the faces. Then put those faces on some of the trains. That would create some diversity and for all we know draw even more attention to the next Mad Bomber episodes. Just a meere idea.

    @Madkre8tor It’s a hard and fast method, possibly not suitable for all. I find models appearing in video need to be overdone for the camera to read the distress. I know many model train people play with powders but I tend to find their effect to be quite subtle.

    @hiesler this method is used widely in the film industry by scenic artists, it’s a fast method for a fairly rustic look. The powders and paints do have their place, that is if you have the time to apply them.

    For film and video work you really need to over do the effect so it can be seen.

    This is a really cool technique. Do you know if it will work on wood as well or just plastic?

    I love the front end loader (To a degree it looks like it was caught in the fireball of a Natural Gas explosion.) I like how a little bit of the stripes by the cab show through it gives it that look like there is a livery under this layer of grime.

    What’s funny I have that same construction set (I got mine years ago, though) Still have most of it…
