I have found that filters will also weather your ship much more subtly than other techniques. Other methods I have found are too heavy handed.
I use filters as well when I want to weather a ship. Utilizing lighter gray or white more heavily will really "chalk" a model.
Here's an example of "chalking" I did with filters:
I use filters, black, white, and lighter blue. Just apply them randomly in vertical steaks of differing intensity. If the Hull is painted with an acrylic paint, I will use highly thinned artistís oils for the filters. With patience, this produces a subtle, but very effective weathered appearance.
I'm looking for any kind of techniques on how to weather Navy Blue paint to make it more interesting looking. I just want to break up the monontony of an all blue ship!
Any help would be extremely appreciated.
