How to Paint Tarmac using Tamiya Texture Paints – Pavement Effect

How to Paint Tarmac using Tamiya Texture Paints – Pavement Effect

Tamiya make a series of texture paints such as grass, earth and snow and they also have a couple of pavement effect paints.  The light gray one is slightly rougher in texture and more representative of concrete.  The darker paint is a new tarmac effect.  It’s s bit dark for me but is easy to paint after application.

Tamiya recommend using a spatula but I struggle to get a smooth flat surface over larger areas so prefer to dilute the paint and paint it on and let it self level.
