♦Chipping is an excellent way of adding realism to your static models, simulating wear by allowing a base color to peep through the top coat. This handy product is applied onto the base coat, with an acrylic top coat applied there after. Apply water to the top coat and it comes away to reveal the base color underneath.

  • Brush water onto areas where you want to chip away the topcoat, then wait a few minutes.
