These finely ground pigments have a slightly greasy nature so that they may be rubbed into a textured finish to produce a permanent stain. They should be brushed or rubbed onto the model with a fingertip, cotton wool or felt pads, then worked into the corners and cracks. They may be smeared with a pad of blotting paper, or fingers and mixed together to get varying hues. Water streaking may be achieved with a paintbrush and water with detergent. The white powder may be used for lime-streaked effects. On gloss-finished surfaces to which the powders may not readily adhere, a matt varnish may be used to provide a base surface. Wet & oily areas should be picked out with a gloss varnish. No further protection is needed and handling a weathered vehicle seems to improve it rather than spoil the finish.
