Running low on masking tape, I improvised with some cooking foil to complete the masking off

Even where I'm having green paint, I still want it to be patchy, peely, and have rusty spots showing through - using a latex based masking fluid, I further masked off areas and spots where I want the rust to show through the green. It is opaque purple when wet, and dries to a shinny see-through film
