Default Rust

I was playing around with my paints trying to get the consistency of rust and this is what I came up with ( its a lot on it but its only my test truck ) please let me know what you think and any opinions on what could be done to improve .

it would look good on the hilux body for sure cause all of them are rusty. it just doesn't seem right on the super duty as i have seen very few with a lil rust due to the fact that they have only been out since 99. you got a good texture down for surface rust. maybe a lil to large of an area though, i would look at a lil bit around the wheel wells maybe rocker panels and cab corners. with what you have there the frame would look sweet with that.

How about utilizing sand and finer powders in the mix for texture?
I have read of this before for tank finishing.
Something that would eat at the surface a little then could be neutralized?...alcohol?

Anyone ever use pastels for dirt and rusty bleed, then clear coat with a flat clear?

I used a mixture of flat enamel paints to get the initial rust color then I shot another mixture of black and gray sparkle (latex) to get the uneven rust look. I just experimented until I got something I liked. Looks decent with the body on.

A buddy of mine is into railroad modeling and he uses this paint on metallic stuff that rusts naturally. It's put where you want it, and it rusts on it's own, perfect scale real rust.

You got the right color but the texture seens a bit off and looks shiny. Rust should have a granular appearence and can be duplicated very well with paint. Here are some examples on my RustBucket:






For the granular look I used sand (fine grain) available in any decent craft stor. It comes in colors, I got mine in brown. To apply I mixed it with diluted white glue so it would dry off clear. The I paint it with combination of raw Sienna, Coffee Brown and Orange. Here is the final result:
