I have often used colored pencils to highlight rivets... takes
just a few minutes
Artist pencils are easy to use, sharp enough for tiny things,
are really cheap, don't
dry out, etc.

How about a teeny-tiny 00000 spotting brush, some thinned
rust-colored acrylic paint, an Optivisor (for those of us older
than Elvis) and a lot of patience?

Archer rivets and their clones have changed the way
many of us approach kitbashing and scratchbuilding. But
while looking at some prototype photos for current projects
I noticed that what I really need are rust colored rivets,
and they need to be applied after painting the car. I know
most of you apply the rivets then paint the car, but I model
post-1960 for the most part, when most riveted cars would
have lost the paint over the rivets. Paint doesn't stick to
rivets well, and that isn't just a post-1960 problem.
