Okay I have layered on the acrylic paints applied with a sponge. Tomorrow I'll give it a light scrub with some 70% alcohol and work my way through the layers until I get to the rust colors. The more serious rust will be added with talc and washes.

Body still needs a little work here and there. The phrase 'Rotten Pumpkin' keeps popping into my head...

I like this. Very natural and realistic looking. Nice.

Some shots. I'm not entirely happy with the way the body has turned out but there is lots of weathering to do so we will see how it goes.
