|I realized that I hadn't painted the inside of the walls - they were still bare dark brown styrene(!) So, once the primer dried I flipped over the walls and shot the backs with my rattlecan of Rustoleum Camoflage paint.|
|After letting things dry overnight, I did the next step - adding a couple drops of black fabric dye to some water and brushing it on as a wash over the parts. You can see the effect in the top wall - the bottom wall has yet to be darkened.|
And here's the kicker: I'm considering sealing this "weathered" look with Dullcote and then brushing on some rubber cement, then airbrushing some gray paint, then "erasuring" some areas for a peeled paint look. This weathering will then show in spots.
Though it does seem a shame to hide most of it. What do you think?
