Weathering Powders

A weathering powder is a finely ground pigment used to create the appearance of grime, rust, dirt, soot and other undesirable but nonetheless omnipresent elements of human-affected landscapes. The targeted use of weathering powders on model railways can create an air of lived-in realism that is almost impossible to otherwise achieve.
Weathering powders can be applied as is (dry) or like paint (wet). They can be mixed together to create unique or hard-to-find colours, or they can be dissolved in a lacquer that is applied with a brush to create even more compelling effects. The key to success with weathering powders is to keep an open mind and experiment.
In most cases, model train builders only need modest amounts of weathering powder, since overuse of rust, soot or other effects can draw too much attention to themselves and away from other elements of the landscape.
With WWScenics Weathering Powders your diorama or model railway landscape will be the talk of the town. Pick up individual containers of our renowned Light Rust, Green Moss, Desert Yellow, Copper Oxide and other weathering powders or get the complete set of 8 along with a station to hold the various powders and related materials.

Answer...Unfortunately, we do not sell different sized sieve heads for the Micro Applicator. Only the Pro Grand Applicator comes with three different sized sieve heads.

Here are some key things for you to check when applying static grass using our applicator:

  • Use a powerful brand-new battery (PP3 9V battery).
  • Do not fill the hopper with too much grass, as the grass needs to have space to move.
  • Only apply a smear of basing glue on the required area and make sure to apply the basing grass before it dries. Room temperature can affect this.
  • Do not apply too much basing grass to the area. If you cover the basing glue with too much grass it will not stand but go flat.
  • Once you have applied the basing grass and cannot see the basing glue anymore, add some layering spray before applying the layering grass.
  • Make sure the crocodile clip is near the applicator's head when applying the grass. You do not need to put a nail or screw into your model.
  • Here is a video showing how to use the applicator:

Unfortunately, we do not have any stockists in Europe or North America. All our products are sold online and shipped from the UK.

We would recommend using our D-Baller which has been specifically designed to get rid of static grass balls. Here is a video showing how to use this useful tool:
