The artist chalk pencils came
from a local box store.
stores, and even department stores
such as Target.
I start penciling in black where
engine exhaust and machine-gun
powder streaks would be on the full-scale aircraft. I use my finger or a
damp rag to smear it. The great thing
about using chalk pencils is that if you
don’t like the outcome, you can clean
it all off with Windex and start over!
After you get the look that you want,
spray a light coat of Rust-Oleum flat
clear over the weathered area and it’s
there to stay.
I spent less than $40 and two hours
creating a unique new addition to
my hangar. This is a great way to give
yourself that “new plane” gratification
without adding to your hangar count
or denting your wallet too hard!
