THE COMPLETE WILDER WEATHERING RANGE

Wilder Textured Earth
Wilder Textured Earth Line is an acrylic based range of paints containing grains. These colors are great for creating ground surfaces on dioramas. Each color comes in two textures: fine and stony.

You can pour the colors right from the jar and spread them onto your diorama. They will not shrink or crack. Use the different tones together in order to obtain authentic looking multi-toned ground work.

You can also paint additional ground tones or add both enamel or acrylic washes over the solidified Textured Earth colors. It will be best to locate any structures, trees and foliage on the diorama while the paint is still wet.


Wilder Gunpowder Line
The Wilder Gunpowder Line consists of colored weathering pigment powders that can be applied onto the model dry to obtain dust effects for example. Both water based thinner and enamel thinner can also be used to spread the pigments in order to obtain different effects while also fixing them to the model.
Gunpowder pigments can also be built up in layers to represent thick layers of mud or rust using FX-01 Fixer.

These powders can also be mixed with other paints like acrylics and enamels in order to alter the tone or to obtain thick textured earth and rust effects. You can obtain the most realistic results when using different rust or earth tones together.

Wilder NitroLine
Wilder NitroLine are enamel-based products for quickly and easily applying various weathering effects onto all types of models and dioramas. NitroLine products can be used straight from the bottle or thinned using enamel thinner. Works best over acrylic finishes. The NitroLine range includes washes and filters.

Washes are a quick means of adding subtle fake shadows and tonal variations. Washes will help to highlight details such as rivets, seams and textures.

Filters are a thin transparent layer of paint applied over a surface to alter the tone of a base coat. Filters need to be brushed onto the model using a paintbrush dampened with the effect.
Wilder Weathering Oils
The Wilder Weathering Oils are:
- Fast-drying to a completely matt finish
- More liquid than traditional oils
- Easier to apply
- Designed especially for modelers
- The 20ml. plastic tubes are easy to squeeze and clean and prevent the oil from drying out.
