Guys,

is it best to do filters by brush or airbrush? I have read that people do differently.

Any experience to share?

Thanks,
Jan

Only by brush. Never by airbrush.
Keep in mind, a "filter" can be described as a type of wash. Instead of darkening recesses and around details, however, the point is to subtly alter the color of the surface to which it is applied. So, use like a traditional wash except thin it more and don't worry about glosscoating prior to application (that would defeat the purpose).

Sepia is great as a filter. I use it all the time and would recommend it over panzer yellow and the three tone camo.
