    I'm pretty sure. I've never seen one that uses oils, enamels and acrylics all together in ways to asset / compliment each type of paint. This guy uses everything from air brush, to fingers, to laser printed transfers, filters, graphite rubs, scotch brite pads and more...all on the same project. incredible stuff...

    I've never seen anyone use a method close to this:

    I thought the stencil he made was awesome, I've never seen that done before.

    for the laser print of the number? that was awesome.
    I like the stencil for the rust effect, and how he intentionally keeps it slightly off the surface to create both the hard edge and slight fade.

    yeah, I liked that too, but seems a bit like too much work for something you can do with a waterslide decal. Plus, he ends up hand cutting each letter....might as well print with any printer onto adhesive backed paper then cut and use as the stencil...but still, ingenious idea...he seems old school, wonder how long he's been doing this.

    Wow, while I may not have much use for this guy's techniques right now for TF customizing, as my skills with weathering max out at heavily using a product called Rustall on a Movie Salvage figure, by customer request, so the figure would have a truck that looked more like the Sanford and Son truck (the customer is very well knowledgeable about that show, probably the reson he bought the toy in the first place). For my other heavey-painting hobby, model railroading however, this could be invaluable for weathering steam engines, especialy the Tyco PoS I have dissasembled and ready for rebuilding.

    Is that the 2 part rust kit sold at hobby shops? I used that on the WWI Grimlock I did, wasn't too fond of the results, seems to be for larger area types....I had better luck with the paint and brush.

    Here's a pic of the rust on Grimlock from that kit.

    That technique was pretty cool. I'm going to add random dots on my stuff and see what happens!

    No, at least I don't think so. The tube of Rustall I used was a simple 'paint and let dry' kinda thing, and works great for narrow ridges like in the parts for Salvage's compund leg ankles. The tube cam in a 4-pack along with a tube of 'dust' (natural build up of dirt for models, works great for buildings), blackwash, and a botle of 'deadflat', which supposedly kills any factory shine (I haven't tried it out yet).

    Here's the link to the product site: RUSTALL Home Page
