Wash disaster
Posted by STUBURT on Thursday, November 30, 2017 8:16 PM

Hello all,

So I did my first try at an overall sludge wash on the bottom of my me410b and well the results where not what I expected. I used some AK pigments over a good coat of future and well it stained the hell out of the bottom I tried everything to remove it . Can anybody explain what went wrong? From what I read and watched all that was needed was a damp cloth and it would wipe as clean as I wanted . Some places it did wipe clean others left big stains. In the end I fixed it as best I could by airbrushing a thin coat of rlm 76 over it looks ok but before I try again I'd like to find out what happened. 

Any advice or a how to would be greatly appreciated.

How long did you let the Future dry before putting on the wash?

What did you use for your wash?  Perhaps you had some materials interaction.

I use oil paints highly thinned with turpenoid.
