once the base coat of spanish olive has cured the same spanish olice is then mixed 90 %olice and 10 % white and a over spray of this mix is applied to the high points of the vehicle concentrating mostly on flat upper surfaces where the sun and weather would be concentrated ......after the base fade is applied then lightly overspray the entire vehicle in the same mix this will blend the entire surface

look closely and it can be seen where the subtle fade is on the side of the turret

Next if appling a camo due the research first and find a suitable theme .....
For my camo I am using a light avacodo as the secondary color .....this is applied with the airbrush shooting about 30 lbs of pressure and done vey closely to the vehicle

Once the secondary color has cured ......take the same color and mix about 10 % white of buff and starting in the center of the pattern and lightly spray to the outer edges .....this can be done as many times as necessary ...each time toneing the mix a little more so the camo progessively lightens as it aproaches the center

The fade materials that are used are rather basic ....it is simply artists oils and lighter fluid ....i know you are thinking lighter fluid are you crazy......no i am not crazy the lighter fluid acts as a thinner for the oil paint

The next step is to apply tiny dots of oil paints to the surface of the vehicle ......then using a small lid with some zippo fluid in it wick the paint brush in the fluid and scrub the oil paints around until they blend in and disapear

This will produce the fade effect

here the difference is evident ...the turret has not received the treatment yet

for vertical surfaces it is done the same .....but while it is still semi wet draw the paint down to produce the effect of rain streaking

Once you are happy with the fade effect a diluted filtewr hash can be applied to highlight raised and recessed areas

Now this segment is very interesting indeed in the aging process techniques.

the fuel tanks are p[ainted with the same color as the vehicle just without the benefit of primer ....this allows for a slightly different tone and adds contrast[br]
