|all paint and dyes are messy!
I find that as long as surface is properly primes(matt grey), then any water based paint will work well. Does mean repainting initially, but then maybe we should start with unliveried models.
Even with nicely finished r2r models, it is possible to wash some matt grey into cracks then apply other dirty colours.
The gunge left over from washing brushes, is also very good for mucky weathering. Main downside is the smell, as old paint gets smelly!
Will try anything once, looking for the ultimate easy to set up portable exhibition layout, preferably French narrow gauge and with lots going on, not necessary on the rails.
