Model Behavior: Rusted Patina Effects

Fabricator Kayte Sabicer shows us how to make plastic models and miniatures look like they’ve rusted with age, using real chemical patinas. The transformation happens before our eyes and the results look awesome!

  1. Considering getting a premium membership for this. Do you have a series of premium member videos covering building and painting the DeAgostini Falcon?

  2.   fantastic! I can’t wait! Please keep this a long form and detailed series. I want to build mine along with you guys but my skills are very rusty. Are you upgrading your interior with Paragrafix photoetch sets and LEDs?

  3. This is outstanding! Long-form content like this sets Tested apart. Norm and Kayte have a natural, unforced rapport that is so refreshing. These model videos have inspired me to get busy and create.

    -Plus, ‘Model’ Behavior, Norm?-Nice!-I see what you did just there!!

  4. I’m doing all of this and more. I’m right now building the coolest small holochess 🙂

    I’ve a blog about, but it’s in italian (sorry) http://www.hobbydrops.com/ilmiofalcon/

    However, if you need some information on what I did, just write me.

    PS: this kind of content and Kayte Sabicer are amazing! Just renewed my premium subscription and I’m so happy about!

    your skills in hosting making content are improving a lot!

  6. Love having Kayte on the site!!! Such a great teacher-communicating the techniques so they’re approachable for newbies. Great seeing a woman featured too!!!

  7. Video doesnt work in firefox, do i need to install anything?

    Works in firefox on android. Might wanna post in support or email tested support.. Details about your o.s. and firefoz version.. Whether its just this video or all of them.. Etc etc

  8. This paint is by Triangle Coatings, the product line is called Sophisticated Finishes. Metallic Iron Base and Rust Patina.

    Anyone know what you would use if you don’t want a grey base. Let’s say you want to do a tank that is in Olive Drab Camo or a White municipal water tower?
