I tried to make my Chinese SKS pouches look dirty. I went with black tea dying because I do not have much experience with weathering and wanted to start with something easy. It is almost not visible on the photo but I can see the difference with the naked eye. The green is now darker and has a little bit of brown in it. The toggle buttons are also darker. They were almost white and now they are somewhere between tan and khaki. Now I why some people's costumes look like they rolled in the dirt for hours when I see them at events. That seems to be the only way to make dirt visible on photos. Light dirt in real life looks like no dirt at all in photos. Confused

pre-machine washed


machine washed twice and-black tea dyeing

You can dust it with khaki and black from a rattle can.
If you need a source for suitable spraypaints at good prices here in Germany, let me know and I'll provide a link.

It would be very nice of you to provide the links for the spray paints, Thorn_Korrd. I appreciate any help that you could provide.

I have no clue how to do this. I always used yellow and brown chalk on my Jawa and Desert Trooper. I have to redo my Jawa before every event because it is made out of linen and the chalk comes out very easily. The chalk stays a little better on the shoes because I rubbed it deep into the canvas fabric and they do not get washed after every event. I want to do something more permanent for this costume.

This is where I usually order my spraypaints:
https://www.industriefarbe.de/epages/62921996.sf/de_DE/?ObjectPath=/Shops/62921996/Categories/Tarnfarben__NatoLacke

The paint is engineered to be used on military vehicles and equipment, will hold up really well and is actually matt.
If you were in the States, I'd have recommended Krylon or Rust-O-Leum, but those brands are hard to find in Germany and if you can find them pretty expensive.

If you want to dust the webbing, go over the fabric lightly in short sweeping passes from 50 cm away, then stop, look at the result and give it another go in places you want to dirty up some more.

Hit the chest rig with the black paint on the lower side and if you like very lightly over the rest of the surface.

If my description is too vague, you can box up your gear and the paints and send them my way. I'll do it for you if you want and return it to you.

Thank you very much for your advice and your offer to do the weathering for me, Thorn_Korrd. I think I will try to do it myself. It is something I need to learn if I want to make more Scarif Marines in the future. I am a strong believer in learning by doing. I am probably going to stay on the light side of weathering for these two Marines but I already have plans for more and I will also need to weather my EA/DICE Battlefront II Tatooine Specialist when she is finished.

Ralf was able to darken the pouches a little bit by using the water with brown dye from my EA/DICE Battlefront II Tatooine Specialist.
