Masking Techniques With Will

81 Comments

We are looking at some interesting masking techniques which you can use with spraying. We've talked about this over the last few weeks on The Weekender.

We shall see how this pays off tomorrow and if the technique is worth giving a go yourself.

Isn’t that the stuff that gave rise to Aliens in Prometheus? 🙂
Is it any better than blutack?

it’s actually silly putty, which is a toy from silicon bromide (I think) The one there is https://www.amazon.co.uk/Science-Museum-Putty-Colour-Varies/dp/B001F36OOW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1488748780&sr=8-1&keywords=science+putty
Some companies sell “Panzer Putty” which is the same stuff but costs about three times the price.

Ive always used blutac, principally on my jagdpanthers. Wonder if this is any better.

I think so, but some people say blu tack does just as well, I think the patterns you can do with this can be much much finer, along with the low tack and no residue means you’ll never ruin your paint work underneath.

Panzer Putty is a great tool for 2 color camo. Looking forward to seeing how they come out.

I’ve never heard of panzer putty. Is it different to silly putty, or just rebranded?

rebranded, that tub is just silly putty.

Great stuff! Been using blutac for awhile and the results are great and it’s eay to clean up. Panzer Putty sounds even better. Gotta give it a look see.

Wow I didn’t realize it was so, runny isn’t the right word, but it seems a bit more viscous than silly putty.

Would really like to see some photos of the results as I’ve only ever seen masking used with an airbrush, not a rattle can.

Don’t see why, especially at 15mm scale, it should’t be very effective and simple for the Camo paint scheme. Shading etc. sure – an air-brush would be necessary, but flat camo paint…

this is my “hobo airbrush” cheap and cheerful paint job.
