rust sprays
« on: February 24, 2019, 05:48:41 AM »

I've been looking at rust effect spray paints on Amazon. They are all metallic, but could they be gone over with a Matt lacquer? Has anyone tried any of these product's? I'm spraying a set of scallop dredges so the whole thing will be rust coloured if that makes a difference. Thanks for you time.

Hi Rd,
Have you looked at model railway weathering paints and powders  do you have a airbrush, oil paints when  thin with turps to make streaks.

No I havnt got an air brush....yet. because of the awkwarard shapes and that involved with a scallop dredge I wasn't sure any of the other usual model weathering techniques would work. I'll do a bit more research into you recommendations, thank you very much.

I imagine they could be providing the lacquer is based on the same paint formulation as the weathering paint.  Rust needs a little texture as it flakes in real life. I used to add talc to enamel paint creating a rough/matt effect depending on how much you added. Gunze Sanyo do Mr Surfacer mediums in a variety of grades for military modellers, but they would be suitable for creating rust texture. Talc is much cheaper though!

Thanks for your replies, I've also come across this other stuff in my searching  called "tv farben kg rust paint" im going to give it a shot once I get an airbrush. Can anyone recommend a good budget friendly set up to buy?
