Hello fellows, wargamers, hobbyists, and miniature enthusiasts. As requested by MR.Lee I have prepared a tutorial for you on how to make your bike dirty with pigments. For this effect I used Vallejo Pigments: Brown Iron Oxide and Light Yellow Ochre.
Step 3. I repeated the same thing from step 1 with the Yellow pigment but this time I added less water. I wanted it to be more chunky then the brown pigment. I applied the pigment into the wheels' recesses and all the gaps. Don't worry if it gets too clumpy and starts to cover details we will clean that up in a moment.
Step 4. Take a moist cotton pad or a paper towel and start cleaning up the pigment from the section of the wheel that touches the ground the most. That is done because any dirt and mud won't stick for too long on this part.
I would recommend using Vallejo pigment fixer but with so much pigment any varnish in a spray can does the trick.
This is the end result...
Hope you like this simple tutorial. If you have any questions, leave them in the comment section below.
I would also like to invite you to the Den's Facebook page. It's easier to receive new updates on new tutorials and painted miniatures.
