Give your leather pieces a gorgeous antique look with this super simple technique!
Whether you are making a cosplay costume, props, model figurines or anything else with a metallic look, you might want to scuff them up to make them look worn and old. This short video from Stan Winston School shows exactly how to do this in a cheap, simple and quick way that still gives you a very realistic effect. Isn’t it amazing how easy some things can be?
Sometimes an old scuffed up object can be just as pretty or even more so then when it was brand new. But who wants to wait several decades to get the surface to be naturally weathered? In this tutorial, Adam Savage from Mythbusters shows us and Will from Tested.com some of the techniques he uses to weather things, like this microscope case he has built. By using water, paint, sandpaper, mallets, bicycle chains and much more, he slowly tear down the surface of his case and ends up with a beautifully weathered look.
