October’s Discovery Drop Unboxed

In October's Discovery Box, we focused our efforts on two natural effects: weathering and marble. To create a realistic marble effect, we included a trio of very high quality acrylic paints from the Italian company, Italeri. They have a great selection of colours to choose from, all in large 30ml bottles, and we were able to pick three tones that created a fantastic marble effect. To test out these paints, subscriber received a Marble Head Tutorial Tile and could follow our step by step guide. Check out some of the results from our subscribers below!

To accompany these, subscribers were able to try out a brand new release from AK Interactive - Weathering Pencils! These are pencils with a grease based paint inside which can be used to add a huge variety of weathering effects to your miniatures. They're a brilliant idea because you get some of the performance of an oil based paint, without having to buy a large tube.

For adding to this weathering effect, we included a two part chipping effect set from Vantage Modelling Solutions. This included a paint, which you apply over the coat you want to chip, and then use the medium to help remove that layer of paint using your brush, leaving only some 'chips' of dark brown. To test out the weathering pencils and chipping effect set, subscribers received our Barricade Tutorial Tile. Ideal for painting and then weathering, and even using as base afterwards.

If you'd like to see how to use the products in this Discovery Box, you can have access to October's Painting Guide plus many others on our Patreon Channel. Download each month's digital guides (at least 5 new added per month) for only $4!
