My pleasure Darren.
Even though I'm a diehard acrylic user, I really like the effects these products produce judging from your review and will have to order some once Iain gets his webstore up and running. Thanks!

Very nice review Darren and sorry for posting a link to my review before you posted yours up.
These weathering products are pretty cool and I have already put in an order for the ones I don't have yet.

Greetings,

I just ordered some of the dust and want to give them a try. Is there anywhere I can get some tips on how to apply them or do I have to buy the DVD? There are tips on the mud, and fuel stain but I couldn't find any on dust. I eventually want the DVD but have to watch my pennies around the holidays.

Thanks,

Cbreeze

AK interactive and AK interactive USA have a DVD that shows alternate ways of using these products, also Rob in his review covers some of their uses, and I have a review in progress of them.

Iain,

I checked out the web site but therre is nothing about the dust which is what I just ordered. Nice descriptions of the other products though. Was wondering why they didn't cover the dust?

Hey cbreeze, the dust and earth effects are great and easy to use. Here is a link of how I used them. I will be doing a youtube video with these products in the near future.
