How to make "chipping effect" (by Özgür Aydın)

Hello dear visitors,

Today, Özgür Aydın wrote an useful article to us about chipping techniques. All of them simple and effective methods. I highly recommend you to browse. Thank you Özgür,
(Translated by Gürkan Özkan, thank you for your help my friend..)

Hairspray technique;

We need a hair spray. First we paint the first coat, primer on the model. I painted black. Then I used hair spray on all around the painted drum. It looks wet. We wait for 10-15 minutes to dry.

I painted the drum by xf-4 yellow green. It must be a light coat, otherwise it would not be easy to make the effect, the primer could be peel off and we can see the drums naked plastic.

After 10 minuted passed, I wash the drum by tap water. Then I touch some parts by my brush. After some practise youll see that its so easy.

I strach by a toothpick and twezeers

Sponge technique;

Im going on with the same drum.

I will use these vallejo colors. I use water as thinner for these vallejos.

I touch the paint with my sponge. I take more of the paint by the help of napkin. You can see the sample photos.

After that we touch some parts of the drum with this sponge.

Pencil technique;

Its the most simple technique. The only material we need is a pencil. Im using a 2b model pencil worth 2 Turkish liras.(1 USD) Working with it for 2 years.

Just touch the corners and make miracles

By making practise and some patience , everbody can do the techniques . Just dont cold feet and go on.
Cheers, Özgür Aydın...
