Weathering Captain America shield

As the shield of Captain America figure (Hot Toys) started to chip, its better to make a weathered shield out of it, with serious paint chip and burn mark / mud. Yes, you read it right, paint chip at the shield of an expensive figure, just like Hot Toys Ironman infamous pink panty, the Captain America figure also suffer the same quality issue as the paint started to crack and chip off.

Okay think i skip the whine and just get to the weathering topic. I was given a screen shot of the Captain America 2:Winter Soldier movie, as you can see the shield is full of smudge, think that is burn mark, and need to replicate that effect.
10519034 10202282048639844 2071175949 o 300x125 Before the smudge effect, i done chipping the paint and some filter of enamel paint, to make it dusty and dirty, then i seal it with top coat. 929125 667768356650283 1539982177 n 300x300

Next i randomly spray some enamel black on the shield.IMG 0625 300x200 Then i wipe it off with cotton bud dip with enamel thinner, make sure the work prior is seal with lacquer top coat.

IMG 0627 300x200 So this is more and less the result i looking for, still need some cleaning to do. Hope this info helpful for weathering. As there are many ways and step in this, still practicing and learning. icon smile

Weather my HGUC Palace Athene

The HGUC Palace Athene was done for more than half year already,  clean build with some modification, can view the gallery here,

Since i out of time for new build, so i just gonna weather it and add a base for it.

I accidentally deleted the WIP photo of the process of how i weather my kits, so i just gonna explain it without much pictures.

I spray a layer of very thinned Testors Model Master Graungrün RLM 74,  then i wipe it off the enamel thinner, using cotton bud, leaving some streak marks on the surface.

The paint chip is painted with very fine brush, using US Olive drab vallejo paint. Silver are boltgun metal from Citadel. Here is the comparison.
