Finishing off the week I added the weathering to the dirt road. I used AIM weathering powders to achieve the tire tracks through the gravel, this is mainly “Off White” and was applied using a saw tooth/weathering brush, and blended into the WS - Fine Buff gravel.
I also added a slightly darker powder to the centre to add a small highlight. I’ll eventually add some very fine grass flock to the centre to simulate some weeds growing along the centre, with a sprinkling of very fine gravel.
I was dreading doing this, it can really make or break the realism if you don’t get the road looking realistic. So far, I'm happy with the results, and the way the scene is progressing.
