    i want to paint a dirt effect on the bottoms of my vehicles. the vehicles are white, and i want to make it look as though they have been diving through mud. suggestions?

    Time doesn't wait for me. I go my own way.

    what i like to do is mix bestail brown and black, undercoat it that. that lightly drybrush desert yellow and then drybrush bleached bone. try it out before you paint it on your tanks.

    I usually drybrush with scorched brown and bestial brown, and then maybe a bit of bad moon yellow mixed with bestial brown (in that order)...

    A good technique I&#39;ve found is using a sponge instead of a brush. Paint the darkest area of the "mud" you want around the base of the vehicle. Then mixing various shades of brown, apply them with a section of sponge. You can drag the sponge, and use a "dabbing" motion to apply the color. This is the way my friend does his and it comes out fairly realistic.

    You don&#39;t want a very big piece of sponge, and if you&#39;ve never painted with a sponge before, you&#39;ll want to practice on some textured surface, just to get an idea what to expect.

    you dont have to paint it , just spread a really good adhesive over the area you want dirty , and then just dip it in sand or whatever you want .

    I agree with that for really dirty vehicles, but you still have to paint the sand or else it throws the model off and looks like your kids were playing with it in the sand box.
