Use chalk instead of paint to color wood, plastic and foam
May 8, 2017
I am a huge fan of AIM's weathering chalks. They are perfect for weathering but also may be used to add color to wood, plastic and foam structures. Dark Rust may be used for rusting tin roofs, but also for a weathered barn which used to be red or shake cedar shingles. It highlights granite rock formations or can be the major color in Southwester rock (see pictures). I prep all my styrene model pieces with a light grey paint, then use AIM chalk to add all colors except white. White chalk can be used to age asphalt and gravel roads. Do yourself a favor and add AIM chalks to your modeling gear in Red Rust, Dirty Yellow, Grimy Black, Light Gray and Dirty White.
