Easy 4-Step Wood Tutorial

If I can do it, anyone can!

You will need:
  • Tamiya XF-59 Desert Yellow acrylic paint
  • Tamiya X-26 Clear Orange
  • Tamiya X-21 Flat Base
  • Dark brown chalk pastel
  • Wire brush
  • A little water



The starting point:


Step 1
Paint with Tamiya XF-59 Desert Yellow acrylic paint


Step 2
Once dry, stroke from front to back with a hard wire brush


Step 3
Rub with dark brown pastel (chalk-type, not oil). Rub in with your finger


Step
Paint over with Tamiya X-26 Clear Orange mixed with a smear of Tamiya X-21 Flat Base and a little water and that's it done!



Here's a 1:1reference



Variations
Vary the finish by changing:
the Step-1 paint colour
the Step-3 pastel colour
the Step-4 clear varnish colour.

Re: Easy 4-Step Wood Tutorial

Thanks AM Results look great.

My own 1:1 Lee Enfield looks a lot more darker and flat finished than the 1:1 reference picture and not nearly as polished and oiled.

Looks good nice work.

I guess about the only rifle the folks in Calif. can own an old WW2 bolt action.

Snicker snicker.:rolleyes:

I painted the middle one today - Tamiya XF-59 Desert Yellow undercoat, brown pastel and a Tamiya X-24 Clear Yellow varnish (mixed with a little matt varnish):
