Perhaps you painting gurus out there might be able to help me here. I'm trying to acheive a certain effect with Grandt Line Window and door castings, and seem at a dead end. Sure, it's a simple task to just paint their castings. These look like nicely maintained, freshly painted doors and windows. :thumb: But, how do I go about simulating doors and windows that could stand a fresh coat of paint, say, within the next year or two? Not complete basket cases, but just a tad scruffy? I tried using a little watered down acrylic paint, thinking that perhaps with some of the original Grandt Line gray plastic showing through, the effect might be acheived, but it just looks like watered down slopped-on paint. Would dry-brushing be a better idea? Any recommendations? ....Pleeeeeeease?
