Anyone really familiar with the MCW enamel line?

Recommended Posts

I swear I heard or read that they offer an enamel paint that's meant to help you create slightly rusty exhaust manifolds.  I took some time and searched their site but didn't find anything, so I sent them an email.  Got a surprisingly unhelpful reply.  

Did I imagine this or am I confusing them with another hobby paint manufacturer who actually offers what i want (moderate rust on iron)?

You can replicate slightly rusted iron manifolds simply by spraying them with the metal finish of your choice, (I use Alclad) and then spray a very light mist of red oxide primer from a spray can from several feet away to create a light speckling of rust.

I use this same technique for many rusted metals, including exhaust pipes.
