    How did you get that wonderful color on the galvanized pipe?

    Thank you

      Hi Gene,
      The pipe is K and S aluminum tubing carefully etched in Ferric Chloride. That gives it a good start. The 3D printed upper cap and the elbow were primed in flat black and given a wash of Polly Scale L and N Grey. Then light dabbing of thinned black, grey and white gouache on everything. The gouache is very forgivable and blends nicely and dries somewhat transparent. Then dab some grey and white pigments and spritz with Dullcote from a distance to mottle. Basically a lot of back and forth working until I'm happy.

    Rusting mostly complete.
    Genius...such a nice effect.  How do the pencils work to give the built up rust effect.  Also noticed you changed your base color from green to red?  Didn't think anyone would notice did ya?...Ken

      So far you are the only one!  I apply the colors with a damp tip in a dot fashion. Some blending with a damp toothpick. Tedious.

    Flat out finest craftsmanship I have ever seen.  Follow everything you do Chuck, and despite you being at a truly unobtainable level I learn something that improves my modeling from your work.  Appreciate your time in posting.
