I've read an excellent article by Scot Dobberful about chalking tissue. He uses Krylon Crystal Clear acrylic coating which, so far as I know, is ony available in the US
A UK company "Crafty Computer Paper", suppliers of decal paper, also market "Keen crystal clear nitroacrylic spray" which I've used in place of Krylon
Has anyone else had experience with this product and is it equivalent to Krylon?

It's likely the same stuff, just re-labeled.

There was an article many years ago in Aeromodeller (I just can't recall the issue to find it) but it was a system for using chalk to get the German WW1 lozenge camouflage with chalk.

From memory, the guy ground the chalk into a powder and tied it in a cloth bag, cut stencils for each colour (in a repeating pattern) and 'pounced' the chalk bag over the stencil (pouncing is simply dabbing hard with the bag, forcing chalk dust into the tissue). He then aligned another stencil for the next colour and repeated, going through all 4 (or 5) colours in turn.. When stuck on and doped, it looked great

Long time to do, but back then inkjet printers were unheard of  Grin

Further to the EasyBuilt article, I grind the chalk with sand paper, then gently rub it into the dull side of Esaki tissue with 'Kleenex'.

The second pic shows before and after applying chalk.

DucoGuro used to sell a DVD that shows tissue covering and chalking tissue -intersting stuff.  I don't know  if he still does. I bought one a few years ago.

I was drawn to this method of colouring having seen the outstanding results achieved by Chris Parent [notably his 1/24th Spitfire] featured in Guest's Model Pages on ffscale.co.uk . . inspiring!

Gents,

I’m in the midst of wanting to try chalking, got the white esaki, white chalk but only found Krylon Crystal Clear #1303 available locally.

The article mentions Krylon Crystal Clear #1301, would really appreciate some advise on the use of #1303, would it work the same?

Thanks in advance.

Regards

The only real difference between the Clear Krylon cans is "Gloss", "Satin", or "Matt" and they all work fine. Different people have their favorite. If it is not noted on the can, it is probably Gloss.
