I have been trying to educate myself on paint aging techniques. I am repairing my daily driver after an accident and would like to try this for my repaint. Conceptually I will build up from black primer with a little red oxide to simulate rust, and use two different colors to form intermediate and top coats......then sand to age the paint. There must be a variety of techniques to create effects that simulate aging.......I would like to hear what you have tried.
I was going to do this on my truck but changed my mind. BUT I had already done my cab in the "patina" look. It was really easy, I bought a gallon of brown single stage and green single stage. I sprayed a couple heavy coats of the brown and a couple of thinner coats of green on top, just enough to cover the brown. After it dried I just went to town sanding the normal places that are weathered on these trucks. Turned out awesome...but then I changed my mind on the patina so had it sandblasted. The paint that I bought was a gloss single stage but when I sanded it a little all over the cab it faded it/flatened it great.
