Armor Casting Detail Technique Questions
Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, November 25, 2003 2:28 PM
Hello Armor Professionals!!!
I’m trying an armor casting technique I've seen on other forums on a Academy Merkava II. This is the first time with this technique.Blush [:I]
I’m still playing with this on scrap but I would like to ask some questions about it. Below is the technique and questions:

I’m thinning squadron putty with nail polish remover and spreading it on top of the model surface...then taking a cut down brush or tooth brush in my case and stippling it to get that casting detailed look.
One question I have is the thinning ratio of nail polish and putty?
I can't seem to figure out what consistency I need so I keep getting varying results.
Another question is application. I am wondering how it is applied by most of you? I’m using an old paint brush but it is hell on the brush and trying to keep it clean is impossible.
Any info on using this technique is GREATLY appreciated!
