A quick how to: RUST

Greetings everyone,
Heres a short pictorial on how to do rust.  If at some point youre creating old looking pieces, doing rust is a must. I have a couple of ways to do rust. The long way consists of 11 different color combinations. I've refined it down to 4 colors, white glue and real fine sand. i'm sure there are alot of ways to do rust, heres my way.

                                          Colors: Sedona Clay, Crocus Yellow, Black,
                                           Sepia, White Glue, Sand

                                          Black is the first color down

                                          White glue is next on the black

                                          Real sand from Palm beach Florida

                                           pour the sand over the glue, let dry

                                          First color on the sand...Sedona  clay  (Adobe Red)

                                          Crocus yellow mixed with Sedona clay

                                          Sepia dabbed here and there

                                           Here is what you will have

                                          When it is completely dry, colors will dull down

                                          Simple way to do rust

  6. Hello
    The great thing about Captain.
    The sand is must to be a very fine grain size (maybe 0.01 -0.1 mm)
    is it clean nature sand?

    1. Thank you Maximex...yes the sand is directly from Palm Beach Florida

  7. Excelent work, explanations, and post Captain!

  8. Thanks for the tutorial.
