Black 13 – That was to be expected! | Part Six

29 The groundwork was painted with a mixture of
dark mud paint and dark brown green pigments.

30 I cut the straw roughly to 5 mm length and used
fresh paint to glue the fibers to the groundwork.

31 The snow powder is littered down into Future
to glue it in place. Letting the snow powder soak up
as much
Future as possible creates realistic snow slush,
whereas less
Future creates fresh snow.

32 The groundwork was finished by adding Future as
a wet effect, adding mud lumps and dirt with
pigments and paint. Adding heavily diluted washes
of mud color creates the effect of snow being
stained by dirty melting water.

32 To create the drag marks caused by the
aircraft slithering over the ground,
I slightly mixed dark brown green pigments
Future. This paste was applied with a
spatula in strokes imitating the direction of travel
of black 13 over the frozen ground. With the right
mixture of pigments and
Future, one can achieve
very realistic effects of a clay-like soil.
