  1. I recently finished up my sandy a month ago and used a mix of acrylic paint and fullers earth to weather my kit. I was curious if anyone would recommend using a sealant or type of clear coat to lock in the weathering from coming off down the road. I'm not worried about the acrylic paint too much it seems pretty strong and hard to take off without some concerted rubbing, but for the fullers earth would it be a good idea to add something to keep it from coming off? I used the hair spray method of coating the parts then adding the fullers on then another coat to help lock it in but should more steps should be taken?

    Happy but not happy with my weathering...

    I was in the same boat when I came to weather mine, that and I had no prior experience in weathering so it was a bit of a learning curve and trial/error to get something to my liking. I used pandas videos as guidance and used primarily the raw and burnt umbers layering one on at a time, then I went back with a scrub pad to take some of the paint off because it was too heavy to my liking, the saying less is more is definitely true in this . Then I sprinkled in some fullers earth to give it some texture and blast hits in some spots. But I can relate to the OP about being undecisive through the process , constantly analyzing each piece and wanting to start over again, it began to drive me insane because I wanted it to look great when done. Eventually I just took a step back and followed through with the process I liked and trusted the path I was on, and thus was very happy with how it come out in the end. In reference to the photos, I agree that the second attempt on the back pieces looks really good , a much even dusty tone across the surface , it looks great what you're doing there! You got this!
