Ageing Sprays – Colour Range
A single coat of ageing spray was applied to cotton fabric at quite close range, for a duration of approximately 2 seconds.
This technique was used to demonstrate the ageing spray colour. To age fabrics, use the application technique described in – Ageing Spray Usage Instructions
The sprayed colour may vary from the colour shown in the images below.
Ageing Sprays Colour Range
Computer monitors display colours differently and so these colours are only for guidance.
Soot Black – a rich matt black. Very high density, very dark, almost opaque. A very resistant and permanent colour, no matter what the fabric. Even visible on darker coloured items. Least washable of all our sprays, will almost always leave a black stain. More powerful than the other ageing sprays and takes longer to dry.
Black – black / blue slate grey colour. Not as dark as Soot Black and dries faster. Washes better. May be left with a light shade of grey on the fabric after washing. Black works well when mixed with Dark Brown and Mid Brown, especially when used on hems.
Grey – light grey colour. Very light shade, low density, subtle colour. Good for mixing with others or very light shading to just make things look slightly dirty. Several coats looks like one coat of Black (above). It is perfect for its use in TV or films, when the ageing effect needs to be washed completely. Makes a good “sweat” stain effect.
Dark Brown – muddy brown colour. Medium density, and dries fast. When washed, leaves yellow/green stains on fabric, but this can be good when doing a sweat or dirt effect. Good for shading. If you are buying just one spray, then make it this one or Mid Brown. Both are good for an ageing base coat, or on its own for almost any type of ageing effect.
Mid Brown – green muddy brown colour. Medium density and dries fast, great for finishing touches on set. When washed, leaves yellow/green stains on fabric, just like Dark Brown. Good for shading. If you are buying just one spray, then make it this one or Dark Brown.
Ash Blonde. – light brown, slightly golden sandy colour. Medium density and dries fast. When washed, leaves yellow/green stains on fabric. Very popular colour. Try using with Dark and Mid brown for a shading effect. Start with Dark Brown and shade into Ash Blonde.
Rust- rusty red / brown colour with shades of orange and yellow. Medium density and dries fast. When washed, leaves yellow/brown stains on fabric. Very good when used for shading. Good “reddish” dirt / rust effect.
Nicotine yellow – Light dirty Yellow/Brown colour. Very light density. When washed, leaves yellow stains on fabric. Looks just like the stain from cigarette smoke. (When sprayed on white paper it makes it look just like parchment). This light shade works well as a highlight when used with the other darker brown colours.
Khaki – green/brown colour. More dense, harder to wash. When washed, leaves yellow/green stains on fabric. Excellent for shading and blending with other brown and yellowish sprays.
Mould – green colour. More dense, harder to wash. When washed, leaves yellow/green stains on fabric. 400ml can size only, not available in 200ml yet.
