AC White Glint - WIP part XV - Paint chipping FX

I am currently adding paint chipping effects to the AC White Glint and Vanguard Overed Boost ( V.O.B. ) parts. I am using the usual sponge technique for the small paint chippings ( using a Citadel paint ) and a fine tipped gray Gundam marker for the bigger scratches and paint chippings.

The focus here is to overdo the damages on the WG, specially on the torso, manipulators, feet and legs and make lesser paint chippings on the other parts specially the V.O.B. parts. I think with some proper lighting once the kit is finished, The results of the weathering will be much more evident.

As you can see I have not given the kit an enamel wash yet...after the paint chipping effects I will seal it with future and give it an enamel wash of flat earth. The flat earth will give it a warmer tone and a more realistic feel to the weathering. Anyways here are some pics of my progress so far...

Just dub the sponge in paint and apply carefully to the kit...wipe the excess paint in the sponge for good measure.

Here are parts with sponge paint chipping only...

NOW, here are the parts with both sponge and Gundam marker paint chipping effects...

Thanks for viewing! I have a few more parts to add paint chipping...til' next post! ;D
