Re: Simulating "Polished" Steel Surfaces

Lately I've weathered a few hopper car interiors by Eric Hansmann's method. Google "weathering hopper interiors", either within the group or generally: he's described it on his blog, in much more detail than I can here. Using a combination of acrylics, the idea is to simulate metal "polished clean" of paint but with a little fresh rust. Reading the blog will suggest variants, both to make the metal more polished and to make it rustier.
