used for the chimney at Far Left (in the image) is done using Doctor Ben’s

Rubbles Depot offers Hollow-Cast Tower Sections as well as other weight
saving casting techniques that will reduce the weight and save you shipping
costs! How can we do this? Because we cast using high quality, dental grade
LabStone that is much STRONGER than ordinary plaster & Hydrocal products
that other folks use.

you ready to do some weathering?
Using Doctor Ben's Industrial Weathering Pigments® as a single component of
the Doctor Ben's Weathering Products®, the Industrial Weathering Pigments
are an even more powerful tool in creating a more realistic model. Not a
powder; and not a chalk, the Doctor Ben's Industrial Weathering Pigments are
easily applied using a soft, but stiff, ordinary hobby brush. However, be
careful, a little bit goes a very long way! I've been using the Doctor Ben's
Industrial Weathering Pigments to tint Hydrocal for years. Just a 1/4
teaspoon make a whole lot of difference when tinting white Hydrocal to an
earth tone color. Very cool!
To the left are
additional great Doctor Ben's products and as we get more images we'll
get them posted here as soon as possible! The Doctor Ben's Weathering
products work best in conjunction with other Doctor Ben's Weathering
Products as well as competitors' products--hey, why not!
Remember, they're not
chalks, and they're not powders, but they ARE Industrial!
Using Doctor Ben's Industrial
I'll try to keep this short, because realistically, I didn't spend the total of
an hour from start to finish. The materials that I used for this project are as
follows: on package of Doctor Ben's Industrial Weathering Pigment - fresh Rust,
one bottle Doctor Ben's Aged Driftwood, a short-bristled, soft, but stiff brush
(the brush in the photo is a Floquil brush that has been cut off short), an a
small container of water to wash out the brush (if I need it).
Step 1: I began with a basic resin casting (Pine Canyon Models) and
sprayed it with the least expensive can of flat black paint found at a local
home center. If it happens to be sunny outside, lay the casting in the sun to
warm up so that the paint will dry faster. Spray the bottom first & when the
bottom is dry, flip the casting over and spay the details from ALL sides. Apply
a second coat if when the first coat is dry & you can still see the white of the
casting. My question is why don't the casters add a little color to these
castings? It would make the finishing process much easier & we could see the
details much easier!
Brush on the Doctor Ben’s Industrial Weathering Pigments with a
burnishing action. Just keep scrubbing the pigments into the various
cracks and crevasses, without being too neat about it. In this project,
to simplify the process, I just used the Doctor Ben’s Industrial
Weathering Pigment #1119 Fresh Rust; and you can see that it looks good.
If you use several of the various colors of Doctor Ben’s Pigments,
however, the diversity of the colors will give better details. You could
use some of the lighter brown colors for the wood, but for this project
I will color the objects with another technique (shown in Step 4 and
I typically skip this next
step, but there are folks out there who are interested in how I
usually seal a finish. Now you may have heard of using ordinary hair
spray for attaching foliage to scale tree trunks. I go down to the local
Big Box store and purchase the least expensive "pump" hair spray that I
can find. These products are usually made up a alcohol and lacquer. I
will use this inexpensive hair spray as a sealer to activate the Doctor
Ben's Industrial Weathering Pigments adhesives and done, the pigments
are literally sealed to the casting. Now you will have to play with this
and not to worry, you can't get too much hair spray on the pigments.
But, if you get too much hair spray on the unfinished casting, you will
see a slight sheen such as the group of the seven wooden barrels in the
image to the left. See the slight sheen on the top of the bottom right
barrel top? yep, that what you get, and with a whisk of the brush and
some Doctor Ben's Industrial Weathering Pigment, it is gone. Like I
stated earlier, I rarely seal the Doctor Ben's Industrial Weathering
Pigments. When I demonstrate these products at hobby shows, folks are
amazed of the handling that some of the demonstration pieces get and how
weathered they remain.
The process of applying the Doctor Ben’s Aged Driftwood can be found
here. So briefly, shake up the bottle of Doctor Ben’s Aged Driftwood for
just a second or two, depending upon how thick you want to stain the
parts. The Doctor Ben’s Aged Driftwood is quite concentrated, and can
get too thick if you use the same bottle for some time. If this happens
to you, just add a couple of teaspoons of rubbing alcohol to the bottle
and shake very well; allow it to settle and check. If it is still too
thick, repeat the process. Now use your trusty burnishing brush to apply
the Doctor Ben’s Aged Driftwood to the sides of the wooden details and
then the tops.
So, here is the big secret: I have an article around here somewhere
about using Sharpie permanent markers for detailing brickwork and
coloring details. Yes, that's correct, and the colors are permanent, and
will not fade over time. For instance, I used a red marker to color the
soda machine and a yellow marker to color the gas pump. I also used more
markers to detail some of the wooden boxes and door, too.
Included with this Industrial Pigment Set set is our *original* Doctor

Art of Turning Toys into Models" booklet (a $3.75 value!). This booklet is for
novices and professional alike.

is no secret, there are lots of copy-cats out there trying to capitalize
on our Doctor Ben's products, but really, do you actually have time to
play chemist? And nobody said that you have to have all 60 colors. Besides, by
using Doctor Ben's products the work is already done for you with
"contest proven results". Why would you settle for anything less! Second
best is still second place and if you are anything like me you'll want
your models to be winners every time!
These are the very same products that
we've used to build Fine Scale Miniatures (FSM), Master Creations,
Thomas A. Yorke, Builders In Scale, and many other craftsman kits for
our customers, and now you can have these same products, too! Quick and
easy, that's how we like to do it and just like what our motto says,
