1 SLIMTRACKS NARROW GAUGE WORKSHOPS PRESENTS HOW TO PAINT USING WASHES - PLASTER RETAINING WALLS By Laurie McLean Photos by the author We ve made some plaster stonework, And it s holding up our track, Can t leave it white unpainted! Oh, our friends just won t come back. So let s get those paints a workin And we ll colour every stone, Our friends will love the artwork, And we ll never be alone. The wonderful thing about railroad modeling is the diverse skills that we pick up along the way to building our great layouts. When good friends share their knowledge & modeling experiences you hear some terrific methods they use often things so simple you wonder why you didn t think of them first but that s the fun of our hobby learning new things along the way. Now we are going to do some artistic work to make our plaster stone retaining walls we made look good & blend in with our scenery. FIG.1 We will be using acrylic tube paints for this they are so easy to work with I love them. Well, before we start we need to make sure that the plaster castings we have made from the latex moulds are COMPLETELY DRY. I use Casting Plaster but Plaster of Paris is pretty much the same. The process of the plaster going-off takes time & trying to paint our castings the next day is definitely not recommended leave them for a week in a dry warm place to let them dry thoroughly. I leave mine out in the morning sun, just 3 hours of the sun actually shining on them is about right for a week. I don t leave them out when moisture is about. Once the plaster has cured completely we can start the painting. No, this is not right the correct term, we don t paint them; - we give them several washes of diluted acrylic weak paint mixes. So, whether we call it washes or stains, it s the same thing very weak thinned-out paint. What colours do we use? That s a good question. What colours are the natural rocks of the area you are modeling? What are the existing colours of your scenery? 1

2 I have read about certain scenery products that are pre-coloured, however, how things look will greatly depend on your layout lighting yes YOUR lighting not the outside real world. You don t have natural lighting in your layout room so; you need to think LIGHTER to show up details & textures so that an amount of depth can be created in the scenery. Lighter is this bloke mad? Yes, lighter colours make for a much better looking layout especially the scenery & what s sitting on it. Go look at photos in magazines the better ones are lighter. There is nothing worse than seeing a beautifully detailed layout & the constant colour is darkish gray everywhere. Your eyes strain to see the details & even if the lights were doubled in the room it still wouldn t look any better it s too dark! - OK, I ll lighten up on this point now. If, after we place the washes of light colours onto our stonework they dry & may be too light, then this can be fixed by applying another wash on top of the first. Its colour build-up & it s controllable by you! All that MUST occur is to let each wash dry BEFORE attempting to place the next wash on top of it. We can mix the colours of the washes they don t have to be exactly the same, this would look artificial. Using strong dark colours just doesn t work in our layout room, under out lighting system. Using light washes that are built up over several nights working is a good way of not over doing it. We must allow the drying time in between each coat we apply. If it s still we then the colour is darker to look at & placing a second coat would be a mistake take your time & enjoy the rewards this brings. FIG.2 The sheet plaster wall. FIG.3 Under the wood trestle retaining wall. In the 2 photos above, FIG.2 & 3, you can see the light colours & you can see the detail & textures & a certain amount of depth created. Note the colours of the rock cliffs behind the locomotive in figure 3 the orange & yellow oxides show as well as some browns & some grays. The stones in the retaining wall match up with the plaster cliffs & rocks these too were painted using the same method as the stonework washes of diluted acrylic paints. Notice on the rocks either side of the retaining wall, they are slightly grayer being older rocks & weathered over time. Subtle differences make the colours & the textures blend realistically together. But most importantly they are light not dark & they can be easily seen. My room lighting is all fluorescent 4 foot tubes positioned directly above the front edge of the layout so that the concentration of light is onto the subject with minimal shadows. If you haven t done your lighting & kept putting it off you need to do this now so that the overall scenery can be made to really look good. My old layout had a mixture of lights & in the wrong places I learnt a valuable lesson & hopefully got my new layout correct the photos sure look better & I can see everything from the front edge to the painted backdrop. 2

3 Now, got the acrylic paints ready? Have you got a wet rag, the small brushes & the pallet tray for mixing the paints? We ll need some water too to dilute the paints as well as a coffee mug to wash our brushes in from time to time. The wet rag can be used quickly if we want to wipe off the paint before it soaks into the plaster & can be used to wipe excess from our paint brush as we work. WHAT COLOURS ARE WE USING? FIG.4 what colours are we going to use? Remember, we asked what colours your area you are copying are or to blend with the existing scenery. For my layout we will use: Yellow Oxide, Raw Umber (I love this colour it s rusty looking), Burnt Umber, Raw Sienna, Carbon Black & of course my favorite colour - white yes WHITE. It s the most important colour we will use as it creates the best effects. Bold strong colours straight from the tube are a fatal mistake to use neat; they are too strong & won t look realistic. Tone them down & all of a sudden things look so much more natural. HOW DO WE MIX THE PAINT? How the paints are diluted is not rocket science, we simply use water. 90% water to 10% paint for the lighter colours & 99% water & 1% paint for the dark colours such as black. Now these figures are watery (pun intended) & are a guide that tends to be a too weak solution but start off VERY weak & you will quickly determine if the mix needs strengthening with more paint. In the pallet place about 1/8 th of an inch of the first paint (say raw umber) squeezed out from the tube. You can cut this off at the tube using a knife. Wipe the knife with the wet rag we had ready after the paint is cut & placed in the pallet bowl. FIG.4 White paint is always used with colours. Here s my pallet with 10 little bowls to mix in. The raw umber & white paint are being used to paint my tree trunks see how it s been mixed - it s the same principal only we are using far less paint & adding lots of water to dilute. The blue tub is a spray can lid with water to wash the brushes. A coffee cup is also used. Let s put some paints out to see what our colours are going to look like. Just a tiny smidgeon of paint now careful we don t put too much out as it will dry & be wasted. In FIG.5 we have our raw umber & burnt umber, Yellow Oxide, a little black with the white in the same bowl to lighten it this will be our gray colour. And of course we can mix any of these together to make blends experiment a little we learn by making mistakes but try it on a piece of old white plaster to get the feel & technique before making a mistake on the real thing. 3

4 FIG.5 You can see the white being gently mixed into the raw sienna & the watery mixes of the other colours. These washes of paints soak into the porous plaster quickly leaving some colour showing on the surface. In FIG.6 the artwork is starting. Here our first applications of colours are being placed on random stones & we will be changing colours often along the way. Note it is not necessary to clean the small paint brush, rather, leave what remains on it & it will blend with the next colour choice as we work. This is one technique painting individual stones randomly. There are other ways also that may be used. Getting the colour into the tiny cracks between the stones is very important to make the stonework look realistic. To do this it is necessary to get some darker washes of colour into these cracks. Enter black wash. This needs to be heavily diluted as it is such a strong colour & a little white can help to tone it down to a dark gray rather than straight black. FIG.6 FIG.7 The other technique is to place the washes directly into the cracks first using a 0 size brush. As can be seen in FIG.7, the wash of black & white is being carefully run into the cracks using the brush in the direction of the crack so not to touch the stone faces. Placing the dark shadowed paint into the cracks gives the stonework some depth & texture. You can see also that the black wash has been painted under the stone lip which would be away from sunlight & in shade. Continuing on with the stone painting we see how things are progressing. (FIG.8,9 & 10) FIG.8 FIG.9 FIG.10 4

5 It s really easy to do this & lot s of fun but the most important thing to be careful of is to make the washes VERY weak. If they are too strong the plaster will never lighten & the texture of the plaster will be lost if too much paint is applied. Go easy & it will turn out nice for you. FIG.11 Well here we are finished & it looks reasonably good. The beauty of using acrylic paints is that the plaster can be re-stained any time later if the colour fades over time. The plaster will remain absorbent to a degree & this allows touch-ups to be done. I used 5 colours plus white for this & when the bridge is fitted into the layout along with the stone abutments they will blend in with the existing scenery of the layout. The colours have been worked out to best effect under the layout lighting in my room. Below in FIG.12 you can see some dry brushing of white paint. This adds high-lights to the stones & the sun fade effect. In summary layout lighting plays a major role in any layout & this is reflected in how everything will look to the viewer be it trains or scenery or backdrop. The colours are to be enjoyed & the lighting dictates how it will look. Colours are mixed to suit the individual layout lighting. Funny it s not how good the artwork is it s how good the lighting & the colour shades that will work with the lighting are. Even though this is mini article is about painting if the paint can t be appreciated it s not going to be any good the lighting plays the important part here. Hmmm.makes for some thought heh? Hope this help you. Your friend down-under, Laurie FIG.12 5
