Faux paint step by step

A couple people asked me to show them how I was reproducing the patina on my truck... I figured this was the better forum to put it in... There are some examples on this page of my build thread http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...=702899&page=7

Keep in mind, so far I am only doing small areas. But will do a couple new doors and a hood later on... I will start off with a epoxy primed part for "actual" rust protection...

Pic 1, the colors I am using. All Krylon.

Pic 2, a primed card, using the same color primmer on the truck.

Pic 3, template and color for a rust spot, say a body line.

Pic 4, the rust spot

Pic 5, another color and a smaller slit to add some depth to the rust spot.

Re: Faux paint step by step

I ended up spraying some more dark gray primer on the card (to "hide" some of the red) to match other areas of the truck. Every panel is different.

I already used some of these techniques in the first pic. I patched in the fuel filler location and spray bombed it... That rusty looking spot is the body line of the cab corner... Cheers!

Re: Faux paint step by step

Here is a spot in the roof where I welded a hole shut. I intentionally sanded a line in it and left a slight low spot in it. I used the dark gray primer and a another color that matched the rust... Is it spotless? No but it will blend in once its cleared...

Re: Faux paint step by step

That's pretty cool to see the before and after shots of the repairs.

Just curious, how exactly do you "drizzle" rattle can paints?

Re: Faux paint step by step

This is pretty impressive. I'd like to see more. Maybe with the larger sections you mention. I've got some rocker/door bottom/fender sections that will need blending on my '65 over the winter. Was planning to have a buddy spray it with a gun and try to get right but these techniques might just work better, if i can get my colors right (hugger orange over light green with a ton of surface rust).

Thank for this!
