Vallejo is a company specializing in acrylic paints.
Weathering Effects - The realistic reproduction of time and weather on models and dioramas. The various products of the New Vallejo Weathering effects range, all of them formulated with permanent pigments and water-based acrylic resins, have been developed to represent the effects of time and weather on models and dioramas, so that they will look as once their originals in the field. This range of effects includes the spilled fuel runnels, the splashed mud, the lichen and moss on wood, the crushed grass stuck to the metal links of the chains of a tank, all the traces of wear and destruction on vehicles in harsh and hostile climate.
The Thick Mud range consists of 6 products with a heavy and thick consistency and a slightly glossy finish, ideal for reproducing terrain on vignettes or dioramas, as well as for texture on the wheels of a car or truck, the lower part of vehicles, and accumulations of mud on the tank tracks. The remains of vegetation included in some of the references provide an especially realistic texture to the final aspect of the model.
The color of mud occurring on alkaline lands, in dry climates of desert and Mediterranean areas, which due to their sandy nature easily absorb humidity.
Thick Mud can be mixed with other products to modify its texture, and can be diluted with Airbrush Thinner to obtain effects of varying density when applying with a brush. For realistic splatter effects on a model, use an Airbrush to blow Thick Mud of the tip of a brush.
Light brown color. Waterbased acrylic paste. Apply with brush.
