Here is my first attempt at creating cars with some graffiti on them. Well I am getting my wife to draw on them with gel and paint markers, then I will seal them with dull coat. I am using a box car that I plan to repaint in CP colors anyway so if it doesn't turn out I will just strip and start fresh. When she gets the hang of it I plan to doodle on some of my good cars that are in CP markings. The pictures are a GN boxcar in 3 states, 1 before paint and 2 after some graffiti.

Here is my first attempts at weathering. I first sprayed the car with a matte varnish, then brushed on a mixture of black India Ink and washer fluid. When dry I then lightly brushed a powder of rust chalk along the the entire cars surface. I also dry brushed the trucks with the rust chalk.
