Because of the appearance of rust is infinitely varied based on materials and environment, modellers often misunderstand and misinterpret rust, leading to unattractive and unrealistic models. This book removes any doubts the modeller may have by clearly familiarizing the reader with various types of rust and the techniques used to create dynamic and realistic oxidation effects. The author Jari Hemilä has dedicated many years to studying the effects of rust and how to accurately represent realistic oxidation, his passion and dedication to the subject will reward each reader with new ideas, tools, and innovative techniques. The Modelling Guide for Rust and Oxidation offers the unique opportunity to improve your skills and your next project.
This comprehensive guide begins by examining how to approach each rusting project, starting with planning and special considerations for this type of model. Every step in the art of painting realistic and visually interesting oxidized vehicles is clearly explained and demonstrated within 170+ pages including hundreds of step by step photos. Rust forms in a wide variety of patterns and colors, here we show the reader how to recreate them accurately.
