Alternative 4 Posted May 30, 2022 Share Posted May 30, 2022 I just tried creating some salt wear on my Tamiya spitfire, specifically I wanted to create metal wear areas around the wing root. I used Mr Colour Silver, added salt then painted the camo. Afterwards I weathered with thinned black and thinned grey through the airbrush. Everything went fine until I flat coated the aircraft at which time the metal color faded from a bright metal to a faded grey, which doesn't have the same effect. I was quite happy with the effect until I added the final flat coat, now it doesn't seem worth the effort How does one keep the metal areas looking shiny while keeping the rest of the aircraft flat in sheen?
