After reading through a few of the articles over on Scratchmod, I decided to give this one a try to work out a few of the kinks that inevitably come from trying a new method. I plucked out an old piece from a Sherman I never got around to building and got to it. All in all, I'm really pleased with the results. For my next test piece I'm going to get hold of some kosher salt for a much chunkier looking finish. Some rain marks and additional oil weathering will go down on the next piece.
I hope to write more on this technique (and maybe even a video!) in the future as I get used to everything! Oh and stay tuned for of what this was a test piece for :).
