    painting rust

    hello all. :w00t:

    i have been a busy bee painting up my nurgle army for 40k

    one simple thing i want to know is how to paint rust well

    a lot of people seem to just wack on some brown ink over the metal and claim its rusty. as great as doign that is, it doesnt really look like rust.

    i just converted myself a nurgle dred from a plastic marine dred, and i wanted to rust up the end of the lascannon.

    i have taken my inspiration for rusting up the lascannon from this forge world model:

    any help would be fantastic.

    When i paint rust, I use various colours such as dark flesh, blazing orange and bolt gun metal (a few other browns etc, use your imagination), and put the paint on the brush, wipe most of it off and then stab the area with the colour, building it up as you go. All the colours will mix and make a nice rust effect. The technical name for this technique is stippling, but I also use a dry brushing technique as well.

    Good luck

    chestnut and orange inks in a similar matter to the above will also produce a rust effect.

    There is also a rust patina that you can get at an art/hobby store such as michaels that will create a real rust effect. Almost looks like something similar was used on the picture on the forgeworld site.

    The stuff is from Modern Options. Very cool stuff I have used it in the past to good effect.

    I've found that using my finger to take off the ink medium or whatever can create a more natural effect. I've seen people use swabs for this, even makeup blotters.

    Let tiny blobs of ink almost dry, then slurp out the center. It will leave a coffee-stain-like ring that looks cool in some cases.

    Here's an example of blotted ink-rust

    Here's an idea: what about scraping off some actual rust and creating some kind of thinned paste?

    The modern options stuff I talked about earlier is real rust. It is a 2 part solution one being iron flakes in a liquid solution and a rusting agent that is brushed on. Works very well and is fast.

    There was an article in White Dwarf some time ago that dealt with painting rust too.

    I use various glazes and extreme highlights to give a 'rusty/worn' look....

    Probably a little more subtle than the 'orange' rust effect, but I like it:yes:
