Faux Rust Finish – Spray Paint Fake Rust Look Onto Your Projects (DIY)


Alright guys so this is a steel wheel That I’m going to paint and make look kind of rusty for a mine cart so I just wanna show you
steps to get started on them and I was like I better stop so I can show you guys how I do this cause I know there are some people out there who may want to know how to do this so first thing I’m going to do is
spray-paint a base coat of brown so I went ahead and
got started but I’m gonna do a lot more so I’ll just
keep the steps going alright guys so now I’ve got a bottom a base coat basically and I didn’t do it solid because I feel like the more layers you have
the cooler it looks but you could coat this all the way if you
wanted to you I kinda like some of the shiny still coming through a little bit not a
lot just some little pockets and stuff like that but if you want to know the color I use for the base coat it is red primer Rustoleum So I’ll just keep layering it. Alright so I just went ahead and sprayed the color aged copper here this is the product right here cant see cause my shadow sorry right here and just a little bit light spray on here its kind of sparkly so don’t spray that much if your gonna do
it the next color I’m going to use is a little bit yellow I’m gonna dry brush that on alright guys so I went ahead and just brushed a little bit of yellow in there but not too much make sure your brush is real dry and then brush the excess off and then just need a little bit on and go in there
and put it on. Alright guys so I just put sienna mist spray-paint over the yellow and this color is awesome for making rust
color cause it kinda turns that yellow dry brushing that I did underneath kind of orange color kind of makes it look kind of rusty and stuff but we are not done yet we have more colors to go so I just went over it and just sprayed a little bit of satin cinnamon color on there and you don’t wanna do a
lot just wanna cover up little bit of just you know it just adds more layers
and stuff basically so and then what I’m going to do is now
I’m just gonna go back in just do a couple more touch up things
and then they should be done but in that pretty rusty now right This is basically pretty much the finish product so they look pretty rusty and I’m happy I went back over it was a little bit aged
copper and they are going to go on the track

  1. Oh my gosh! JEANA!!! Thank you so much for this video! That ends up looking amazing with all those different layers! This will definitely come in handy over the next year…i can't wait to try this. Thanks a TON for the video! 🙂 

  2. Your rust paint looks great. I think it is time for a Hollywood Haunter marathon because I miss it so much.

  3. Spent like $40 in paint to get an alright rust effect. How in the hell do you consider that inexpensive? Actually doesn't even look like a really good rust effect either. You could have spent less than $10 and gotten basically a real rust finish with Sophisticated finishes brand.

  4. I know this was made a while ago, I do like the colors and the finished product. However I think you could've gone a step further to create more depth, by adding texture. There are plenty of spray texture paints but something inexpensive I would suggest is just going over certain parts you want to look more rusted than others with HOT GLUE! You just add it to the particular parts, then using a flat pallet knife or something of that nature, gently tap on the hot glue until it has the amount of texture that you'd like.

    Then, paint as usual! 😀

  5. Awesome vid. Might I suggest a few constructive points (please don't take offense to any of them):1) I suggest you not do these vids in full sun as it washes out a lot of the rich color and detail.2) You use "alright guys" every time you come back in from a time-pause. Try to make it seamless.  3) Try using a tripod. Inexpensive and captures everything you're doing. 4) Wipe your butt with what I say and continue on as-is. They're good videos anyway. Anthony

  6. Turned out nice. I'm currently building a model semi truck out of cardboard & I'm trying to figure out a way to get a rusty look on the cardboard. I've even though of cutting some thin sheet metal & letting it rust & gluing it on top of the cardboard but I'd much rather do something easier. I've been contemplating using elmer's clear dry glue mixed with rusty water to see if that would work as something I could brush on over the cardboard but something like this would be far easier I'm thinking. Thanks for posting.

  7. Really cool!! Where did you get the wheels? Sorry if you mentioned that in the vid I don't have audio on this computer.
