How do I proceed with Track Black Pro?
Pour blackening fluid into a receptacle.
Using tweezers submerge compatible tracks in the fluid for 5-10 min. Disperse any air pockets using a brush! Flip the tracks and again disperse any air pockets, allow another 5-10 min. Once the tracks are blackened to your satisfaction take them out, rinse with running water and dry using a paper towel and hair dryer.
Burnish the tracks using a shortened stiff flat hog brush (scrubber brush) or a soft metal brush to achieve the likeness of steel.
Weather the tracks with pigments of your choice to fit your model's scenario.
