Rusty Truck

Designer: Marcia Roullard



  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Brush on SS-179 Antique Red to the body of the truck.
  3. Brush on a mix of SS-135 White and a drop of SS-138 Flat Black to the chrome sections of the truck. Brush SS-138 Flat Black to the windows and tires. Thin SS-138 Flat Black with water, brush over the grills to shadow.
  4. Brush the inside of the bed of the truck with SS-138 Flat Black.
  5. Pour MM-106 Steel Metallic into a wide mouth jar and mix it thoroughly. Use an old brush as it cannot be used for glazing after using it with the metallics.
  6. Brush a thick coat of the Steel Metallic on the body of the truck allowing some of the red stain show.
  7. Spray heavily with MM-305 Rapid Rust. This must be sprayed while the Steel is wet. Alternatively, you can brush it on.
  8. If desired, re-apply rust and Patina for a more rusty finish.
  9. Dry brush more of the Antique Red and SS-211 Orange Rust over the Antique Red if you want more of the red to show.
  10. Dry Brush one coat of SS-81 Shimmering Silver over the chrome areas.
  11. Brush on a coat of MM-502 Gloss Sealer over the red spots on the car, it will make it look more realistic and stop the Steel Metallic from rusting further on these areas.
  12. Apply AC-502 Matte Brush-On Sealer if desired.
