See title. Has someone used them and can share experience with them?

Be it rust or dust? I have a bunch of pigments, but I shy away from using them a lot of the time because

a) for rust I find crusted rust deposits from ak to be way more dramatic and easy to use

B) Fixing is such a hassle

 

I am kind of hoping these might be cool, because greenstuffworlds Pigment Fixer is actually pretty good.

Hey Vespasian,

I haven't tried them, but regarding the fixer: have you tried AK's? It works perfectly for me and has fairly short drying times.

When fixing with a brush you are supposed to tap it to the pigment and let the capillary action do its thing right?

I always loose a bunch of pigment doing that. Maybe I should spray the fixer. I have vallejos and greenstuffworlds fixer.

Funnily enough I was applying weathering powder yesterday and wondering how to apply the pigment fixer. I might have to try spraying it next time I'm able to find room to use my airbrush.

Don't spray it, and try AK Interactive's instead. It works great by capillary action. I used Vallejo's for years and wondered why my finish was always crap. Or simply use an enamel wash, works 90% as well and gives you more options. It was in my Weathering ZM Bases tutorial...whistling.gif

I did that for tank treads now that you mention it. 'Blended' it into the oilwash

Yeah, I bet that worked great, and you kill two birds with one bolter round.
