About: 16yrs old. Building Armor out of Aluminium. From Germany. Love to all my Followers and Likers! <3

Your armor is a bit too shiney, am i right?

After my succesful tutorial how to add Battledamag wich you can find here, i present you my weathering tutorial

What you will need for your costum dirt:

  • Black acrylic paint
  • Brown acrylic paint
  • water
  • hard brush
  • kitchen sponge
  • wet rag
  • Multi-Cleaner

Mix the paint like this: 3/4 black and 1/4 brown, then add a good shot of water.

Step 1:

Take your clean stuff (like armor pieces, weapons, everything will work.

I used my belly plate of my mandalorian armor (its metal)

Just cover the whole thing with your acrylic dirt. Then wait till its dry.

Step 2:

Spray some cleaner stuff on the hard site of your sponge and distribute it over your object. to use one's discretion

Step 3:

With the wet rag you wipe over it and distributethe paint. Just do it like you want it to look, its pretty easy, just try it :D

imagine where dirt could remain hanging.

results may differ :D
