Building A OO Gauge Model Railway: Plasticard Brick Painting – A Heavily Weathered Alternative

Share it with your friends Like

So, I’ve covered these sorts of videos before and in some ways this is no different. I’m using the same techniques to apply the paint to highlight the brick but in this video I show you the colours to use to create that heavily weathered look to the brick. This is perfect for those railway cuttings, bridges and tunnels where a lot of smoke stained brickwork would appear.

I can’t help but feel there should be some graffiti on that bridge and you could even make it look like it’s old graffiti. Also the bridge looks great good sir!!

Weathered effect looks good. I suspect I'll be using a similar type when I come to do buildings on the layout being worked on ATM, as it is set in the north east on a colliery (though electric rather than steam operated, but still heavy grime from all the industry in the area)
