    Jun 29, 2011, 4:02 PM - Anyone using Rust. Anodized Bronze? #1

    I'm in the middle of painting my ROTJ jetpack, and just on a whim, I picked up a can of Rustoleum Anodized Bronze. Sort of a warm gray. Just a touch of brown in it. Then I found myself coming back to it over and over for misting "grunge" over lighter colors like the white bars on the pack, and the yellow. It's more subtle and "charred" looking than misting with black, gray or brown. This color is turning out to be indispensible! Anyone else using this? Recommended!

    Samples of Anodized bronze over a combo of Satin White and Almond:

    nice look! does the bronze have a metallic finish to it? i would think that could hurt it as a weathering choice. it looks great in the pics but it's hard to tell sometimes.

    Stormtrooperguy -- nope. It's not metallic. Semi-gloss. But I'm finishing up with a flat clear coat at the end.

    I'll have to try those camo colors, too. Thanks.
