    Metal Shed/Building

    Okay, so I was making a shed type building made from cardboard. I removed the outer layer of corrigated cardboard so it would look like that metal thats wavy. Don't know what its called.

    I need your help. How will I paint it? I can't use GW paints, it would cost too much. I want paint that looks mettallic. Where could I find that?

    Howdy,Ibram.WalMart sells a silver metallic paint that drybrushes on very nicely for a metallic look.Give it a wash with a reddish brown paint or ink and it'll look weathered as well.

    Before you start to paint it though, you should really give it a layer of watered down PVA-glue to prevent it from "sucking" to much paint. The rough surface of the carbord is so absorbent (is that a word?) and the paint could turn out very un-even, and the surface-structure of the cardboard could also "mutate" if not delt with.

    good luck

    Lol...

    It's called... believe it or not.... Corrogated Iron sheeting.

    How to paint it.... well I once covered and Ork camp (from Gorka Morka) in the stuff... I painted it black then gave it a very liberal drybrush of Boltgun metal.

    I left it at that, but it can be made rusty by adding a brownish red wash or highlighted using chainmail.

    Now this may sound silly, but is there anything wrong with using Poster Paint for painting scenery, then using GW paints? I was going to cover the thing with black poster paint first, then drybrush with GW paints.
