Doc O'Brian's Weathering Powders
Posted by Tanker-Builder on Sunday, August 9, 2020 2:42 PM


      A Ship -Builder knows what they are! It's the best thing that's happened to me since Kraft Caramels! I have been building some paper models lately. One got scuffed around the bows.It had been started( Cut Out) by the person I got it from. Tried Clear Acrylic Semi-Gloss base-coat. Then Doc O'brians Ash White dusting powder. Omigosh!it looks like a brand new ship YAY !

     This tells me one thing.No matter what you model, get this stuff! Mine was given me by the Museum because no one wanted the stuff. Their loss! You aughta see the road dust on a pickup truck model I tried it on. Geez, I wish I could get this posting photos right, really I do. Oh well. You've seen what I can do.

Oh, my. I have a set of those that's probably 30 years old. Not like the new high tech weathering sets now available but a step up from playground chalk.


 Modeling is an excuse to buy books.

I believe ye may have your 'Docs' mixed up there, old son.

Doc O'Brien had the weathering powders.
