Looking for a quick, effective and cheap way to make weathering powders? It’s your lucky day. 

Pigment powders add texture to matt effects such as rust, dirt and corrosion. If you’re looking for authentic finish for your trains, buildings and models they’re pretty much essential but at from £5 to £10 for a small pot they’re not cheap. These handy tutorials show you how to make your own, and using soft artists or children’s pastels they’re a lot cheaper.

And just for good measure, here’s a great video from Humbrol on mixing and using their weathering powders.
