i tried making my own sludge wash, using sepia, umber and black oil paint, and white spirit.


Not sure if its worked or i should wash it all off!


Its over a gloss layer, so can be removed if needs.image.jpeg

Hi Dave.


once the wash is on.and the thinners have dried.Use a cotton cloth very slightly damp with thinners and wipe off the majority of the wash leaving the wash in the recess's.


Hope this helps,others probably know better than me.

To my mind, that's much too dark Dave. German Grey was very dark in reality, but I always think it needs to be lighter to allow for scale.


Also, a sludge wash is heavier than a standard wash. I add talc to mine to give it ' body ' & use it for noticeable build-ups of dust & dirt. I wouldn't use it all over.

I'd say that looks pretty good from here! This is going to turn out really well I think!
