I just brought the AK interactive washes for green vehicles, brilliant specially the rust effect, but I'm struggling with dark streak. Just don't know how I can get the right effect, I know you paint it horizontally across then allow it to dry a bit before brushing back and forward. Well not the best way to explain...... I think I could be overloading the brush? any pointers?

Hi James
When blending the dark streaks, have you tried using a brush damped with solvent? Could be white spirit.
