Hi there

Have been experimenting with using salt as a weathering technique for simulating small paint chips, very simple very fast

Step 1 - Apply undercoat - metal or rust effect
Step 2 - Lightly brush the affected area with water and apply Cerebos table salt over the water
Step 3 - Allow to dry for an hour

Step 4 - airbrush over with Tamiya Acrylic, differing shades at differing angles can also give the multilevel paint effect

You can also vary the salt particle size or quantity of salt to give a heavier chipped effect

Step 5- remove salt with coarse brush

Step 6 - streak rust with oil and enjoy meal

Ja that looks cool.
I believe if you use rock salt and wipe it off in the direction of travel it leaves lekker scratches as well and very uneaven chips that look great.
S%@#*! Now where did that piece go??!!
