Default Oil in Miniature - "Terror in New York City"

Hey all,

Any ideas how the oil in this shot was done? Watered down paint? What do you think they used to spray it?



Cheers,
Dave

Would sump oil have produced that or would the droplets be too large.

I think that it might be watered down paint, things like that behave in different ways.See also Captain Scarlet episodes Fire at Rig 15 and the hovercraft episode

There's a guy in my class who uses indian ink for everything and it may well be that. I think the more difficult question is "how did they spray it?" It seems to be quite pressured. If you look "Fire at Rig 15" from Captain Scarlet, there is a shot where the oil is being sprayed from half way up the structure, showing that what ever is spraying it must be quite small.

Another thing that bugs me is not knowing how they pumped white paint along the side of ships to create the "foam." Also, the "airline" that they placed at the bow to create a bow wave. Anyone know what exactly these were? What ever they were using to do these kind of things must've been pretty small, and everything I can think of would be too big.

I reckon an airbrush could do it

At a guess, Steradent tablets for the foam, as for the bow, hold the model steady, and pump water past it
