    Turning clean and shiny wagons into dirty well used wagons that look part of a working railway not just out of the workshop.
    Using similar method to Gary's tutorial but with Pan Pastels and sealed with an artist's spray fixative esp for pastels before a final seal with a matte spray also for pastels
    I still need to remove the bogies and paint all the wheels.

    Thanks Cameron
    It's not hard the hardest thing is to take the plunge and decide to make that new model that you just spent hard earned on and make it really dirty.

    The Pan Pastels what are they.
    An artist's soft pastel they come in pans

    They come as singles or as packs like I got, two 10 packs from online site Fishpond.com

    They come with foam Aplication tools when you get the packs.
    Two sets with the 10 packs the fish pond price was also about half price of any other sites and when I tried local shop they only had odd colours not good for weathering and also about $12per pan. Link http://www.fishpond.com.au/Toys/PanPastel-Ultra-Soft-Artist-Pastel-Set-9ml-10Pkg-Colorfin/9999894400127

    They look like this

    The two packs I got cover a lot of colours good for weathering and I have used most already

    Very nice Chris. :thumbs:

    Those pastels are definitely the go. I see you use fixative for pastels to seal the colours in. I'm sure SWMBO has a can of this... Must try. ;);)

    Cheers, Gary.
