Good morning, gunslingers!

Today's Daz's Daily is a quick look at tires. This is pretty much the same method I use for any kind of rubber hosing etc.

Over a black undercoat, the tire is overbrushed with neat Coal Black with a large flat brush.  Overbrushing is exactly like drybrushing, you just don't need to wipe off as much paint. This will give the rubber a rough look from the start.

I added a small amount of Mouldy Ochre to the Coal Black and gave the tire a heavy drybrush focussing on the edges of the tire.

I added more Mouldy Ochre to the mix and drybrushed the tire again but this time I had very little paint on the brush.

The tire treads were edge highlighted by adding a little Morrow White to the previous mix. If you want a clean tire you can finish the process here.

To weather the tire I made a wash mix of Mouldy Ochre and Bloodstone in equal parts and then watered it down 3-1. This was applied heavily over the whole tire.  You could use pigments to achieve this effect, however I am not very skilled in their use - yet.

When the wash had dried I took off any excess with a damp cotton bud and job’s a good'un!
