Concrete Texture from Ammo is a relatively new product from their Vignettes Acrylic line. This product is designed for small and medium sized dioramas or vignettes and comes ready to use in a 100ml tub.
Borrowing from Ammo's own description: The application method is remarkably simple. You can use any kind of tool at hand and the CONCRETE TEXTURE can be mixed with other weathering materials such as pigments or acrylic paints to create a full range of authentic concrete effects. It can be used for any scale ranging from 1/16 to 1/72.
The dried surface mimics the look and texture of concrete beautifully. This particular texture can be sanded, after a through drying, to a smoother finish should you so desire. The acrylic base of Concrete Textures allows for easy clean-up and thinning with water as well as being odorless and non-toxic.
I applied some Concrete Texture to a small strip of basswood. The portion farthest from the bare wood has been sanded with an emery board to give you an idea of what that can look like. The next section has been 'stained' with Tamiya panel liner and the last bit of concrete texture is the raw, unadulterated product.
Concrete Textures from Ammo is pretty neat stuff and holds the possibility for myriad applications for your next project. Aside from Concrete there are eight other colors in this line, some of which are available in 250ml containers.
My thanks to AMMO/MiG and IPMS/USA for the review sample.
