Here is my new weathering tutorial, hot off the press!

Also thank you for include the hazard warning/shaming for me
I found this video really good to see how your doing the pin wash with the enamels so it's a little clearer to me how I'll be approaching my next victims.

Nice to see a more complete video showing what you're doing. I actually wouldn't even mind one that's not been sped up if you could find something to say for that long
How long does the liquid mask work for? Will it eventually 'dry out' and stop working? How about when you manually brush over it instead of airbrushing? (yes, I'm trying for lazy battle damage on infantry here!)
You're also doing a solid job of repeatedly convincing me that I need to try out enamel washing for marine armour. I don't know if I would end up reverting back to acrylics but I feel like it's definitely something I need to play with.
I'll likely have another reply once I've watched it again
Oh, and the little nod to @James was nice - always assume we're stupid!

I think your getting the balance pretty perfect now. I'm quite an impatient viewer and will usually skip steps etc but I was really quite happy and content watching the whole thing. good music too

Sorry, I wasn't very clear - I meant on the model. Once it's applied does it have a 'working time' as such, or can you use it until it's sealed?
And yeah, over the mask. Undercoat > colour > mask > colour (by brush)
I assume it doesn't dry very solid if brushing paint over it would take it away?
I would say don't worry about the time. Edit it until you're happy with what you've shown and seen, and whatever length it is will be right
In particular (re: 800%) I would like to see a little more of the work after you've applied the pin wash - the blending process looks simple enough, and I'm sure that a little trial-and-error is probably enough to get the hang of it, but a little bit of focus on it at some time in the future would be nice. Maybe a 'how and why' you blend in the way you do, what you can/can't use it for etc. (I know you said you were kind of covering this already)
I noticed as well that you said that when the enamels/oils have fully cured you can't blend them any more - why is that? I assume that when you're blending they're still (even after 24 hours) slightly wet? I had thought that they could be worked with at any point until they were sealed.
Looking forward to part 2 =]
