Easy fading

I remember reading about this technique in one of Model Railroader magazine’s books: A quick and easy way to fade rolling stock is to follow a spray of Testors Dullcote with another spray of isopropyl alcohol, either 70 or 90 percent. When the alcohol dries, it leaves a faded, hazy look. If it’s too faded, spray with more Dullcote and the effect will go away.
