Right! we’ve all heard of the hairspray and Coarse Kosher salt technique of rust weathering??? No! me neither . . . till of lately and it’s as old as Warhammer modelling technique apparently .  Anyway it’s only of good use if you have a spray gun. Here’s a way of doing it with enamel paints or acrylics if you like the old methods of drybrushing etc with an original twist. This was just a tester on a sample surface.

1.Paint a surface like this and add your desired colour scheme. Dab a colour or two.

2.When dry, spray heavily with a firm hold hairspray and when wet add the bottom of a packet of crushed lightly salted tortilla chips. (crush to your liking and size) to the wet surface spray.

3.When dry, add paint darker over the surface with an old brush and leave again to dry.

4.With an old brush wet with water and rub against its surface and watch it flake away and weather. You can judge yourself the degree of how much you want rubbed away for the embossed rust feel. You can then add more colour with a brush if required and scrape with a knife here and there.

Yes, l recal reading it and your link... (fine work btw)and at the time l was eating tortillas and thought bingo... try it with the chip bits as l wanted a technique that would work with brushes and paint, as you know with coarse salt and paint dont work well. But with the chips and paint they dont dissolve, or very little ;-)

that's easily resolved, just buy TWO bags! Just don't mix up the paint and the dip.

If you put some tortilla chips in the oven till burnt (dark) you can get a char charcoal like effect when smashed and sprinkled on wet hairspray!! Plus it's even more sealed in for the brush paint ad.

5,6,7,8 are that detail adds using Tortillas, l sparyed the hair lacquer into the canister lid and applied/dipped with an old brush for that part before chip sprinkles etc.


Below: This l took with my professional camera to show the look as the others were taken with my ipad cam.
Well, Not to shoddy an experiment!!!!, just use a little dry rush tech after washing off, knife scratch here and there a little and bobs your uncle etc . . . ;-)

Wow, I would never have imagined that tortilla chips got it to look like that. I will definitely be using this in the future.

Barb, We'll l hope you get great results.... Trial & error eh!! Love to see people's efforts so let me know how it goes.

Sorry about colour paint numbers delay, ... The main ones are . . .
 Humbrol matts 82, (orange like rust)
Revell matt 37 (darkish red rust)

But I mix and match depending, sometimes a dash of dark brown or mustard yellow (revell matt 16). It's good to experiment. Hope that helps SUrvivalman.
