  • Alex, the rust was a new technique to me, using baking soda. The way it was explained to me the first time I saw it was, you put down a layer of white glue, sprinkle on the baking soda, then come back and tint it. I missed that part.

    I started with a coat of acrylic paint letting that be my adhesive, usually burnt sienna, in small sections where I wanted the rust, and sprinkle the soda into the wet paint. Sometimes adding a wash of more burnt sienna by dabbing and letting the soda wick it up. When that dries I dab raw sienna on it. When all that's dry I dab an ink/alcohol wash on it.

    Before I pulled the Porter off the display to rust it I experimented with this little project, and a couple of smaller ones.

    • It is very convincing and sounds rather easy to manage, Terrell. Any traps one should avoid?

      • No traps that I can think of, Frederic. Both projects were handled extensively, with no loss of rust. I worked slowly, in spots, to get an uneven appearance in texture and color.

        I guess one trap might be, if you use the I/A wash, make sure it is good and dry before handling, it will loosen up the acrylic paint. Work one side of the project at a time, letting it dry.

        I should also add, I shot it with dull-coat when done. Sometimes even with the washes the baking soda has a "glint" to it.

        • Thanks a bunch, Terell, great technique, sounds simple too, one I will surely use the next time I will be rusting something.

          Nice looking pick up:}

            • For those who may have followed this thread back in the day, I have started a new thread in the On30 section where I have begun turning this project into a layout. A lot of the new thread will be redundant until I get further into the thread.

              • Terrell, I love that machine shop photo. Looks like I'll be along for the ride too.

                • Well, I don't know why all of my pictures are back, after what Photobucket pulled last year. But I guess we can enjoy them while they are.
