First Look

AK Interactive produces an ever-growing array of hobby paints, pigments, washes, as well as books and videos on how to use these products in your daily modeling projects. It would only make sense that they would produce a nice selection of application brushes that would make the job of weathering even easier.

Weathering Brushes Set

This set provides five of their more popular brush types which are used in applying pigments, dust, etc., to the surface of your model. This set includes:

  • AK576 Saw Shape Weathering Brush
  • AK577 Fine Long Weathering Brush
  • AK578 Diagonal Weathering Brush
  • AK579 Rounded Weathering Brush
  • AK580 Fan Shape Weathering Brush

These brushes can be used in painting and dry-brushing as well as weathering, but several of these shapes are designed to achieve unique weathering pattern that you'll see not only in AK Interactive's how-to titles, but in weathering tutorials from a variety of authors/publishers. AK Interactive has an extenisive selection of brush shapes and sizes but this survival kit will get you the most common shapes you'll need to get better results.

My sincere thanks to AK Interactive for this review sample!
