I see that there are many different weathering powders out there and I'm drawn to the Doc O'Brien's weathering powders available through Micro-Mark. Anyone use these? If so, how'd you like them?
Well I think they work and look just like any other weathering powders.
So you should just try out the dirrent ones in tell you find one you like.
Sorry guys I mean diffrent.
I've used Micro-Mark "Doc O'Brien's" weathering powders for probably 4 years now for rolling stock & buildings.
I like them, but to be honest I've never used another brand of weathering powders.
Just don't clear spray after your done weathering as it may all come off. Well maybe if you spray very lightly?
Wadda ya mean I'm old ? Just because I remember gasoline at 9 cents a gallon and those big coal burning steamers.
Check out the "make up" counter at your local Wal-Mart, ladies make up comes in a rainbow of colors and works vey well, plus it's cheap and readily available.
I have one of these Doc O'Brien's weathering chalk sets. Other than the colors available, there's really no difference between it and any other brand of weathering chalk.
After using any brand of weathering chalk, a light overspray with a clear, dullcoat product is advisable so you don't smear or leave fingerprints on the model. I use a spray can of clear coat I found in the craft area at Wal-mart.
it does help that my wife is a Mary Kay Consultant. I inherited a bunch of Ladies Make up (Discontinued or expired) that i use sometimes.

It was difficult enough to shop for hobby supplies at JoAnn fabrics (fence material), now I have to include the cosmetics counter?
