There seems to be lots of questions being asked about gauntlets suddenly, so let me ask this...
My mom used to paint these resin sculptures using acrylics. When she was done she would clear coat them and then rub/pour a liquid weathering "bath" on them. This stuff would seep into the cracks and make the little statues look old. Afterwards she would simply dap off the excess, let them dry and clear coat them again.
I was getting ready to put the resin bits on my gauntlets and thought after I did this and before I dry-brush it with silver, I could use this type of weathering. This would really help fill in those gaps around where the resin and styrene meet. It would also give them that grimy, lived-in look.
Has anyone here ever tried this? If so, what did you mix up to create this type of solution.
Oh, and I'm using all enamels on my gauntlets.
