I made this WW2 era nose art panel *those are real bullet holes* I found the metal for this piece, I think it use to be a shelf. I clamped a piece of angle iron down as a straight edge snap I sanded it down just to knock the gloss down, so the new paint would stick better. ultra flat military green holes for future faux rivets I could have just free handed this on the metal I dont remember why I made a pounce pattern… probably because I’m not confident in my abilities… … there I said it… hope you’re happy now… don’t sit there and act like you don’t have flaws… I’m also not very good at speling I’m trying my best Oh wait! here comes the gun shots… *bang *bang That was a 9mm hand gun ok back inside now. using some metallic silver I hit some areas I wanted to make look like the military green was chipping away Kosher salt makes a great random masking element painting the military green back on over the salt, then vacuuming the salt away these upholstery tacks had a nice domed head that reminded me of rivets remember those holes we drilled earlier? they were for those upholstery tacks here’s a clip I could have left out… using watered down acrylic paints I created a rust color and put it in all the areas that might have rust… I used a vinyl stick stencil to paint theses bombs wire brush patina More rust… but I hear you saying, ” but Mr. Iron Gordon, how does aluminum rust?” well it doesn’t… but maybe over time air borne metals, and the tools that where used to build the plane left some metal residues… (?) whats with all the questions… geez get off my back! sorry I yelled… I’m glad you’re here Please subscribe and let me know in the comments if you read these closed captions. not many people know I put them on here… it’ll be our secret I’ll try better next time.
