    Storyboard is looking great, can't wait to see the set.  The sets are my favorite part of stop motion!

    Making some tombtones / headstones from polyethylene. its from a wrong order, I needed eva-foam for making a helmet  and they send me polyethylene. So we use it for this animation stop motion project B)

    Well here a few pictures ;



    cutting it out



    every tombstone / headstone gets 2 parts.



    gluing the pieces together.



    First paint job gray.



    Milling details on the tombstone / the headstones.



    Re-painting the tombstones / the headstones, gray again.
    Tomorrow I buy Moss in a scale model shop.
    Isn't ready , maybe next week ???

    I get not the desired effect and what color I should use.
    so test and test again until I have my way.

    I use a lot of acrylic washes on stuff like this.   Either brushed on thick and wiped off to leave the color in the recesses, or sprayed on thin and allowed to dry in streaks to simulate weathering.

    I'm writing up a quick post now about a logo paint job I just did with a lot of washes.

  • Hi Freddy,

    I suggest that you use some black charcoal, pounce it into a cheesecloth bag, and randomly smother all of your props with it. Wipe away what you wish and seal it with a thinned-out mod-podge. Chris' suggestion of a thin acrylic wash is also nice.

    I also suggest that you put various cracks and take chunks out of your props to properly age them.

    Good luck!
