Thats cool. I'm going to have to make a winter type scene one of these days and give that a try.

Well, I am FINALLY getting Hyzer's Tiger II M4A3 decal so I will definitely use this technique for my dozer.

Splattered Mud and Ice n Snow Accumulation 12 Oct 2010 13:27 #5

Anyone who has driven dirt roads in the winter will understand what I am trying to portray. When its warm enough for the surface to get wet, mud gets splattered all over the back end of the vehicle, when the sun gets lower in the sky, there is no more mud splatter, but snow and frost accumulate in the arse end very quickly, and it adheres like a thick, but even coating. I really had to think about how I was going to do this, not the splatter, that's easy, but a mess to clean up, it was the even frosty coating of snow over the splatter that was the hard part. I can tell you I had to break down the AB numerous times to clean out gunk before I discovered the most simple solution! So are we ready?

Mud splatter is easy, just mix some pigments, thinner and gloss and load up the AB. Turn the air pressure VERY low, and flick the trigger back. It will spit and splatter, now just aim and flick over and over again and you will get thick gobs of mud! the fun part is cleaning the AB - 20-30 minutes easily!
