Valkyre Diary - Entry 5

Well well well....
I did some final touches with my favourite weathering tool: the pencil!

I drew it over the edges...

scraped of a bit...

and used my finger for "painting" ^^
(this gives a realistic metalic sheen on the edges you rubb with it)

I also finished the gunners (I'll shoot some better pics later) and put everything together.

A quick CNN-style pic as a preview ;) :

  1. I love using a pencil for weathering! One of my fav tools in the arsenal. It's so simple and works so well. Will you be hitting the pencil with the varnish as well?

  2. Hm... no I don't think it's necessary.
    Although... maybe one more coat ^^.

  3. Whenever I'm using pencil I'm always worried that it will end up smudgy, especially when using it along edges and as scratching. Hitting it with the varnish doesn't tend to kill any of the shine for me (I'm usually using GW Purity Seal).

    Superb weathering all around btw. Count me in as a reader ^_-.

  4. Ok, thx for the tip and thx for
    reading. :)

  5. Hi,
