If rust is all you need than rust is what you will get. check out this web site. This weathering powder requiers NO overcoating for bonding. This stuff is the greatest. I use it on all of my projects requiring weathering and rusting.
dont know the name of the stuff i saw, cause i only looked at it once put it back cause i didnt need it then and since i have a garage full of paint and stuff i dont need already..:lol......
if you have a hardware store or something that sells spraypaint, and you can find rust coloured paint......spray some on, and sand it....will give it a good rusty weathered look,
