I have been asked to make an ible of how to paint a camoflauge pattern with a rust effect as in my http://www.instructables.com/id/Camoflauge-B-ATM-03-FATTY-GROUND-CUSTOM-airbrushe/...  Well, here it is!

Step 1: Materials You Will Need

You will need in general for the rust effect:
Aibrush ( I will be using the Sparkman 2.0mm)+ airpump
Tamiya (or any other brand) brown (and I mean many types of brown, preferably 4) acrylic paints (and maybe a green or two)
Something to paint (I will be using a white Lego block)
Water
Salt (I will explain why you need this later)
2 containers
toothpicks + Masking tape (or something you can use to hold onto the pieces)
blocks of wood with holes (or something to hold up your wet painted pieces


 

Step 2: Prepare For Painting

Attach your pieces to the toothpicks (I rolled tape around the tootchpicks so they would fit in the lego piece's hole)

Step 7: Choose your Camoflauge Type

Spray your model (or lego block) with your base colour (desert yellow) in a  nice even coat. After that, spray your detail colour(s) in wavy lines, dot, or just random shapes. your model should now look like mine in the picture, except you should have clumps of dried, coloured salt on yours.

I would probably put another layer of clear coat on after the final step, just to make sure that the effect won't wear off

yeah, but after that coat, the model just wont look realistic anymore.. just make sure its a dull coat.

Cool! I will be experimenting with this. It appears that the technique isn't limited to camouflage designs which is useful. I bought a model to modify this weekend. Some rust spots will look good.

yupp, you can put any colours ontop of the rust effect and salt.. good luck =) show me how it comes out.
