>>5169987 rust looks flat
Actually, if the original pic had been a little more zoomed in, you'd see that it's got all sorts of textures to it. The rust is real rust, and is rough and powdery. It also gets all sorts of variations of color. From really light orange, to dark browns... it just sort of "happens". Like I said, when I get home, I'll post some pics of this rusty epic battle wagon.
>>5170007so, can it work by putting the rust paint, painting over it and then using the rust activator or is it easier to paint the model then user the activator on top of it?
Donno yet, both seem perfectly viable to me. Gonna try them both tonight. I think it would depend on how you want the mini to look. I'm thinking prime, put a coat of this on, let cure, paint mini, use a q-tip to rub off some of the paint while wet (or do the rock salt trick... I like that trick, I gotta try that), exposing the iron paint, let the thing dry and then use the rust activator. That way rust will run down on the paint in streaks... like real rust does. But I suppose painting then rusting it up afterwards would work fine too.
Best bet is to try em both.
