Pigments for model painters are used for weathering and ageing the finish of vehicles, armour, fortifications and structures; they are ideal for creating the effects of accumulated dust, dirt, and mud produced by time and natural erosion. The pigments chosen for this range are all earth and iron oxides, especially suitable for all the different climatic and geographical conditions of the terrain of a diorama. They are pigments which are employed in the manufacture of our colors, and have been especially processed and micronized so that they are very easily dispersed in any liquid medium, from water to acrylic resins or turpentine. To fix the pigment to the surface of the model the Pigment Binder #26233 is used, which has a slightly delayed drying time to allow some manipulation, such as the simulation of water and snow run-offs or moving the pigment into and around the details of the model. Many other special effects can be obtained by mixing pigments with products in our Water & Stone range such as Transparent Water #26201, to achieve effects of oil and grease stains, or Sandy Paste #26215 to create a rough, coarse surface of heavy dried mud or flaking deep rust.
