Weathering Pigments
Secret Weapon Weathering Pigments are made from natural, non toxic materials and can be used to create realistic weathering on scale model projects, dioramas, bases. The technique is as simple as adding a bit of pigment to a brush, or even your fingertip, and gently rubbing it over the area that you'd like to weather. Pigment Sets in Secret Weapon online store are bundled groups of pigment by application, such as rust, or colour sets, such as greens, and include a discount over the individual purchase price. What is most interesting to me, it is that there are such unusual colors: green or blue.

Kolejne pigmenty dostępne na rynku. Wyróżniają je jednak nietypowe kolory. Daje nam to możliwość zastosowania ich w zupełnie inny sposób i w zupełnie innych obszarach modelarstwa. Niebieski pigment możemy np. użyć do uzyskania efektu śniedzi.

Each bottle contains approximately (20ml) of pigment

Waterborne polymer primer is available in a versatile Neutral Gray color that is perfect for use as a basis for any color. Its superb adhesion qualities combined with a matt-satin finish make this primer the perfect choice for preparing models for painting. Only a light layer of primer is required for full, effective coverage; insuring that every surface detail remain crisp and clean. 

The gray primer has a darker tone than its counterpart of Vallejo.

Not just the typical alcohol and water based thinner, specially formulated product is ideal for creating the perfect paint consistency for brush and airbrush. It's need to be shake well before using.
