Hi there

Stumbled on this method by accident while experimenting with the salt chipping method

Spray the vehicle with water and then allow to stand for a few minutes, the areas where the most wear will typically take place will be the level surfaces where the water takes takes the longest to evaporate/run off. Before the water dries fully spray the Tamiya XF 2 flat white with a little Lacquer thinners over the surface in a random pattern, but not too thick. I also added a few grains of salt to some of the edges to get small paint flakes. The air brush will remove some of the remaining water during the paint application, allowing a random pattern to form.

Allow to dry for a few hours then blow off the dry white paint - the paint that was sprayed over the wet surface will not have enough grip on the surface and will be removed by the air. Alternatively you can also use a course brush to remove the loose dry paint.
