I'm trying to get my Inquisitor's coat to have this "old warn leather" look. I tried terra cota(sp?) drybushed over a black basecoat and that worked, but it looks like something's missing. Any suggestions on how to get the coat to look like faded brown leather?
well, aged leather tends to crack and look like circular plates on a fuzzy background, that is lighter in color. if you wanted, you could paint a light basecoat, and then paint over it with small spots with a tiny line showing through the cracks. this would maybe give a nice effect, but i don't know if it would work.

When leather ages it tends to go greyer rather than whiter.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.

Hmm..I'll give that a try. Thanks. ^_^Originally Posted by The Salmon Thief
For aged, worn leather, try a light wash of brownish ink over the whole area... I have found it brings all my colors together when I notice something is missing. But the key is 'Light' wash... if it is too heavy you will ruin it. A little experimentation on a test model (we all have one) will let you figure out the proportions quickly enough.
