MTSC PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT: The Weathering Effects Range from Acrylicos Vallejo


Acrylics Vallejo or simply Vallejo, the industry leader in acrylic paint and modeling products is has a new range of water-based weathering effects like you’ve never seen before. The various products of the Weathering Effects range, all of them formulated with permanent pigments and waterbased acrylic resins, have been developed to represent the effects of time and weather on models and dioramas, so that they will look as once their originals in the field. This range of effects includes the spilled fuel runnels, the splashed mud, the lichen and moss on wood, the crushed grass stuck to the metal links of the chains of a tank,all the traces of wear and destruction on vehicles in harsh and hostile climate. By placing a vehicle in a realistic setting, at rest for a brief moment, we can tell a complete story about its history of past battles in foreign zones of war.

All effects in the range are available in 40 ml. bottles.



Splash Mud
When a vehicle drives through muddy terrain, mud splashes are inevitable. The range of Splash Mud has been formulated so that by simply blowing air through the airbrush over a brush loaded with mud, from a short distance from the model and on the specific area, realistic splash effects will be spattered all over the model. Splash Mud can also be applied using a stiff brush or stick. The range includes six different kinds of mud, manufactured with natural pigments and waterbased acrylic resins, which dries to a slightly glossy finish which suggest the humid nature of the products

Engine Effects
A vehicle with an engine has many moving parts -the transmission, wheels and axis, tracks, hinges and chains- all of them mechanisms subject to traction and movement which have to be lubricated to function correctly. In addition, the internal combustion engine needs fuel, and dust accumulates, while dirt forms a part of this mechanical and dynamic context. The range of Engine Effects offers the modeler a series of references to reproduce the fuel stains, the spilled oil (leaving a trail of drops on the vehicle panels and in the dust of the road), the marks left by the oil drums on the floor of the truck, the dirt accumulated in the engine compartment, all these to enhance the realistic aspect of the model.

VLJ-73813 Oil Stains Weathering Effect
