For washes on intricated areas, filled with details, a moderately matt-to-gloss paint underneath works well. If the paint is too matt, simply paint a layer of True Earth's CRYSTAL LOCK and let it dry some hours before applying the wash.
For washes, True Earth’s FILTER & WASH can be used pure or pre-diluted. As a start for tryouts, 1 part filter to 1 part water.
First wet the part to be treated with water, to facilitate the flow of the wash in the interstices, and then distemper the filter thonned as told on ths surface. Clean away excess from flat and undetailed parts. Let it dry in a dust free place.
The result is perfectly clean and sharp, with no smell, no solvents...
SELECTIVE wash - PINWASH
Washes only made around raised details, riveting, into corners and recesses, to let them stand out.
It 'a particularly useful technique whenever for example we have used a given tone of FILTER & WASH as a global filter, and we want to use a darker one only for the definition of details. Or whenever we want the maximum cleanliness, for example to emphasize the shape of a new machine, without wear.
A satin-to-gloss surface is preferable. If the paint is too matt, simply paint a layer of True Earth's CRYSTAL LOCK and let it dry some hours before applying the wash.
For the earliest tryouts, thin down a part of FILTER & WASH with 1 part water. Add a minimal amount of filter , only around the details, touch rivets, fill recessed panel lines and turn around raised panels. For a better feathering, avoid any excess.
The result will be a clean and sharp enhance of details.
