    Well, here are a couple of snap-shots of my non-Archer Etchant "rust." It perhaps isn't as realistic as using etchant, but it's safer... maybe:rolleyes:

    I paint the roofing with Floquil Foundation and Earth. Then I paint a "slurry" of alcohol and ground chalks over that.

    And one more.

    (For those who are curious, these photos are of a large milling complex that I haven't finished yet.)

    If you model the southern U.S., these are two types of roofing that are very prevalent...

    Casey,
    I can only dream of attaining that look you get in your modeling!

    Here's one of my "metal" roofs...(styrene)
    For the "rust", I dry-brushed with Polly Scale acrylics...(Roof Brown & Dirt)

    Just thought I'd pass it along that India Ink (Higgins Brand) is available in a number of colors. That might be interesting for making stains to simulate faded painted wood.

    Secret recipe!!

    Thanks for the secret recipe's Casey, that is a really good Idea.I head no Idea that you would soak them for hours, but it makes sense!! I always paint as much as I can prior to glueing as well, then just touch up a bit afterwards.

    Vic, thanks for the info on the different India inks,, I'll have to look for that.

    And yes, Shamus, it looks like you just pulled it out of the drink, and it's going to rust away!!
