Dry Brushing and Streaks
Posted by Paolo 67 on Monday, January 23, 2017 7:37 AM

Just wondering at what stage do you dry brush and paint streaks on your armor? Do you do both on the gloss protective coat stage, or after the final coat of matt?

I don't do that much Armor, but on planes and ships I do dry brushing after dull coating- with model completely finished except for weathering.  I think dry brushing is still a useful and quick technique, even though many have gone away from it for various filter techniques.

I do dry brushing right after the basecoats,so that filtering and weathering tones them down.

I do streaking after the flat coat.

I do my dry bruishing as the first stage of weathering, so straight after decals.I then add a gloss clear go before carrying on.

I do the streaks after filtering and before the final flat coat.

Thanks for the tips, guys. I'll have to play around and see which way to go.
