Most of the cars shown, are done with the Q-tip wipe off method. I either spray the car with Floquil solvent based Rail Tie Brown and wipe it off with odorless turpentine called turpenoid or I use gwash that is thinned with windex and applied with a brush, air dried with an airbrush, and wiped off with a Q-tip soaked with windex.

I also do some dry brushing with oils and blending with an airbrush. I even use chalks at times.
