The first in a series of Step-by-Step tutorials for creating simple bases, painting & weathering and using the NEW Vallejo Weathering Effects.
Creating Black Asphalt for road bases.
Sometimes we want to just display a vehicle on a road or pad, be it cement or concrete. In the past I have made two or three bases for tanks and this always involved a plaster and sand mix and then painting it black when dry, or adding some black paint to the mix to get a base for the black paint.
For my rusty Panther Tank I decided to once again make a base of Asphalt with cracks and very dusty. I turned to my arsenal of Vallejo Texture Effects and decided to use the 26.214 Black Lava (Asphalt) for the first time. This Texture Effect is a deep black so this saves in painting the dried asphalt black. The Texture Effect is very grainy due to the fine sand that is pre-mixed in the container.
This simple Step-by-Step shows just how easy it is to replicate Asphalt using 26.214 Black Lava texture.
