For a quick guide on how to use weathering powders click here
THESE ITEMS ARE AVAILABLE TO PRE-ORDER NOW AND WILL BE DESPATCHED WEEK COMMENCING THE 28TH OF SEPTEMBER
Thats a lot of money for powder. Why not just got o an art store and buy some pastels and grind them up. Thats what I do and its only like 70% cheaper and I get more colors.
Nice PDF guide though. Never thought of using rubbing alcohol with the pastels.

I saw these in my e-mail update... My first though was 'I wonder what danjones thinks of these..."
He's been a heavy user of weathering pigments, and I'm guessing these are meant to be a similar thing, yes?
I don't personally think I'd have any use for them myself, but that doesn't mean I'm not curious about them!
i dont really see the point the effects can be so easily made by other means. Infact looking at the FW guide i actually really dont like the look of the last rusty effect one, the only one think looks any good is the first one with the vent fumes.

Using different mediums with the pigments gives loads of extra effects. See my link below.
Also one thing I noted was the fact the FW guide states to use Matt Varnish to seal the pigments, with the mig and vallejo pigments the varnishes sometimes ruin the effects or change or eat the pigments, I wonder if FW have overcome this or a certain matt varnish has been used. Im going to try an enamel varnish next time.
For those who are interested Ive got a link HERE to the mig guide, its got some great hints and tips for those who will be using pigments and shows more techniques than the FW guide.
Anyhow, nice one Kuffy.
(Did I just thank Kuffy, errrr!)
Powder? What is this powder. is it a liquid or actual powder. If it's powder how does it stay on the model, even moving it to varnish it would make the powder fall off.
The varnish will protect it to a certain extent. Mig produce a product called fixer for pigments or something which sets the pigments and protects them. Not sure if this is better than a varnish.
The pigments are in the same pots as P3, Foundry, and Coates d Arms paints so they are 18ml each.
Quorn! - Protein for the Protein God.
The only time you've really got to be careful is if you're doing loose dirt and grime that doesn't get worked in - that's when you flood the area with thinner to fix things down before you move it.
It all makes perfect sense once you start actually using the stuff.
Actually not that expensive... I see, on a webshop in Belgium, that a pot of MIG weathering powder costs 3.95€ per pot and FW asks 2.70£. And with the pound being so weak, FW's powders actually seem quite the bargain. Now let's hope that they're as good quality as MIG's.
