    How to paint rust?

    Hi,

    I know, there must be like a thousand posts describing how to paint rust, but I just can't seem to find a good one. I'm probably just really bad att searching though but I'd really apprechiate if someone could write down a good techinque or a link to a good post on the subject.

    The short-short version: There are two techniques I've used, both work well.

    1) Basecoat in a metal, then do a very heavy wash of black or brown (you can try the Citadel washes, but if the basecoat is a dark metal like Tin Bitz you may have better luck with a thinned-down Scorched Brown or Chaos Black). Finally, do a light drybrush of the original metal or a slightly lighter shade (i.e., Mithril Silver instead of Boltgun Metal). I like this one better for "aged" metal, like my Necrons.

    2) Basecoat in the "rust" color (i.e., Scorched Brown), then "stipple" on a bright orange color (such as Citadels' Blazing Orange), then drybrush with your metallics, maybe even a little stippling for good measure. This technique is better when you want the appearance of something that is totally corroded except for the very edges/tips, where the oxidation looks like it's been scraped off in battle/use.

    Thank you all for the responses.

    Yesterday I actually tried out the second of Canew's two techniques and it came out pretty well.

    I figured I'd write a little more about what I actually hade in mind. I feel my current paint scheme for my csm is a little dull. It looks like this:



    So a while ago I did an experiment and came up with this:



    Then it took a while before I got any painting done, and when I revisited the matter I started thinking; "of all the colors available I choose brown and beige?! How long before I grow tired of that I wonder?" So now my mind is (allmost, ) settled on Catachan green with just a hint of Mecharite red for a slightly darker tone. It is at this point that the rust come into the picture. I want to add corroded parts to the armor to give that ancient feeling to them. I'll try and get som pictures of last night's experiment up tonight or tomorrow to give you a better idea of where I'm heading.

    Anyway, this is what I did:
    1. Prime black
    2. Basecoat of Catachan Green mixed with a tiny amount of Mecharite Red
    3. Stipple a few areas generously with Scorched Brown
    4. Stipple the same areas with a small amount of Blazing Orange
    5. Stipple the same areas with a small amount of Boltgun Metal (I stippled becase I don't feel that nearly flat surfaces like legs lend themselves very well to drybrushing)
    6. A generous wash of Devlan Mud

    As I said, hopefully, there'll be pictures in the near future.

    If anyone would care to modify or elaborate on the subject now that I've let on more on my plans, feel free to do so.

    Again thanks.

    So, for those images I promised you. I didn't get to do any photographing until it was begining to get dark and most artificial light makes so colors seem other than what they are so the images are a little dark, rather than a little deceptive.




    A lesson learned though is to use a brush with really stiff hairs in it. I used a standard brush that had come close to it's end and cut the nonexistant tip from it to form a flat top. After a short stippling session, the hairs all pointed outwards instead.

    Also, I'm aiming for an "aged metal" color on the trims, (not shown in these pictures) I'll probably use Boltgun Metal with a bit of brown in it.

    Comments and suggestions are most welcome.

    It looks very nice. I think that, coupled with your brown and beige paintjob will look extremely nice.

    I painted up some test models with this as a basis, the result can be viewed here (Mechatius' Chaos Space Marines).

    Im a bit late entering this thread.


    I did this using the hairspray technique with may main colours over a scorched brown base. I then lightly washed mig pigments over the areas to give the diffused wet rust look.
