    Hello all I have built a few structures and weathered them with chalks. I would like to know what to use to fix the chalk so it doesn't come off any ideas? Some of the buildings are wood others are plastic if that matters.


    Thanks

    You need to apply some dull coat to them. Testors or you can go to the hardware store and get a big can of dulcoat.

    Funny thing, I was just watching a dvd on weathering and was on the part that was weathering with chalks and I paused to check the new posts and this was here sign1

    Video? We don't want video. We want photos of YOUR weathered buildings!

    Easy Weathering Techniques with Dave Frary Bob Hagden.

    My grandpa got it form me a few months back from micro-mark.

    I just finished my first chalk weathered freight car and I have to say that I love the looks of it!!! Pics will be posted later today. I did a BNSF 55' Centerfllow covered hopper and it looks sooooo cool. Now I need to weather the trucks and couplers.
