    sliver, if I may know, what shading colors you used on this part? gray on the white and soot on the red?

    I'm going to try shading soon on my next kits, so I might as well ask what I need to know here before messing up anything...

    I think I'm going to get the set B and E too... since I'm planning to get a PG Strike Freedom, and the outer armor parts don't have so much details, so I think it might look plain unless I do something. since I don't plan to do heavy mods, maybe shading would make it look better.

    thanks for the answer

    my weathering kits ordered from HLJ came today, and I noticed that one of the colors have dried, now it looks like small rocks inside the container, instead of shaped like a box inside the container. any idea on what should I do? or just use it as it is? (I think there's no problem, but everytime the container tilted, everything inside would be a mess, so it's kind of annoying).

    Try to keep it flat?

    For e small stones, I would suggest u use a small spoon to grind it back into powdery state. Bear in mind it might b abit messy during e grinding n those powder will b light so handle w care in case there is wind?
    Anyone wanna share their 2cents on this?

    tats gd to hear! tks for trying out this method, glad u find this method useful. Very Happy
    if you have any feedback for this method, do drop a note here so that we can find a better/faster way to obtain better results so that non ab-users can obtain 'shading' on their kits

    once again, thank you for 'risking' your kits to try out this method Wink

    I've tried this method too, the results are nice... definitely need to get used first, otherwise the shading might not be consistent (darker in one place, lighter in others, vice versa). Razz

    thanks to sliver for sharing this.

    for pics, refer to my WIP thread : http://www.sggunplasociety.com/t900-pg-strike-freedom-gundam-wip

    thanks for the tutorial silver. Will try it out on my next kit. Is it possible to use crayons? does it give the same result? Kinda hard to get the weathering set where i am

    you can try to order online from online hobby shops.
    not sure about using crayons but i am guessing if you can grind the crayon to very very very fine grains, should be able to work

    A quick question. how to do shading on the shield parts like what Spector did using Silver's method? Which end do u use? the sponge or the brush? If we use the sponge side, won't it be hard to shade nearer to the middle? Thanks.
