New Weathering techniques using enamels and worn effects from AK interactive

I've been working on one of my Hell Diver Power Armor figures and I wanted to try some of the AK interactive weathering enamels that I got.

I painted the trooper black, then base coat of light grey on the armor plates. This represented the primer coat.

I then brushed on a thin layer of the AK interactive worn effects.

Once that dried I painted on the base green color I was after.

I then put a little bit of water all over the model and using a stiff brush and toothpick knocked off some of the paint.

Once all of that was dry I put on decals (using the micro-sol and micro-set) and using the Nato Armor Wash (AK interactive) and Earth Enamel Wash (AK interactive).

This is what i've come up with so far:

I'll take more pictures soon, and i'm going to try and put together a cool "Scene" shot too.

What do you folks think?
