I'm about to make some old Pirate Ships, and I was curious: does anyone know a handy way of replicating old, chipped, faded paint on a 'wooden' surface?

Hi SFK!

Welcome to the forum!

Making chipped paint is rather difficult I think. However you could try to simulate this effect by using a "stamp" technique.

You use a medium/large brush (preferably an old one that has lost its tip) to apply shades of the desired colour in a "stamping" fashion.

e.g. I made this litte image on photoshop. I hope that helps.

Hi SFK!

Nice to see you here (as well!) I am painting worn and patchy paint on wood at the moment, on my Orc Pirate Cutter! I painted the whole area as wood first then over-painted the area I wanted to look painted dark red, leaving all the edges raggedy. I will highlight this with bight red in a wood-grain style of horizontal lines - the same way I highlighted the wood.

It's far from finished:

What about using the Vallejo Crackle medium

Quote :
CRACKLE MEDIUM

Waterbased medium which is used between two coats of paint to create a weathered effect, or as a final coat to create a transparent crackle surface. (Please see Arte Deco Techniques for more detailed information).
Characteristics: Crackle Medium is a clear liquid, which dries to a transparent film, which will crackle if applied on an acrylic base of either paint or primer.
Application: With a soft brush or sponge, without reworking.
Packaging: In 17ml. Bottles, (boxes of 6). Ref. 70598.
