So what does everyone think of that rust paint offered at Transworld? We bought 3 gallons of it and I have used it a little bit. At this point I'm not blown away with the results but I'm still playing with it. Seems you need ALOT whenever you use it on anything. At least 3-4 coats before activating. Wondering what everyone else thinks?

Be sure that you THOROUGHLY mix the paint before applying it. I suggest using a drywall mixing paddle and a drill.

Also, the paint works much better if it is sprayed through a hopper gun (even, rusty finish) or dabbed on with paint brushes (more uneven, chunky finish) rather than actually brushed or rolled on like regular paint. You need to be sure that you are getting enough of the actual iron on the surface and then activate the paint while it's still wet. You can go back later and add more activator to make it pop even more.

Just some helpful hints...

But I thought it was alot of trouble for the effort when there is several things that work just as good! Shane and that's just my opinion! Shane

Here's a good way to make rust and you have alot of it around your shop area. Buy a rust color paint and mix a bunch of saw dust into it till you get the thickness you are looking for, when it drys highlight by dry brushing some metallic paint on it. Looks pretty much like rust for the cost of a gallon of paint. You can also make pipe grime the same way using different colors. I'd never spend $100's on paint.

Looks great whispers!

Not to poo on everyone else's ideas here because they're all good...but nothing looks as much like rust as...well...RUST! This is the real deal and 120 for a gallon of paint and a gallon of activator is not out of hand. I have used this stuff to paint entire rooms of an attraction we revamped in the St. Louis area and, not only did it look fantastic, but it is really durable too. It really comes down to what you're willing to pay for but for my money I'll never try to produce a faux rust finish again. I can hopper spray this paint and cover entire scenes in no time. No going back with dry brushing or color washes or what have you. Spray it, activate it, move on!

That's my two cents. I know a lot of the paint got sold at TW so I hope everyone is really enjoying the product and I'd love to see what projects everyone uses it on so let's see some!

We may be talking about 2 different things. Did you sell this product? If so I did not see it. Shane and it's let me know? Shane

The only complaint is that it made the shop smell like a big sulfuric cat turd!! I thought the product worked very well.

Hey guys, if you're interested in product that produces rust, check out the Torture Factory's Rust Dust. We've developed a product that allows you to rust any surface that you can paint. Brutal Rust is a good product, don't get me wrong, but it couldn't do everything we wanted it to do. So we came up with our own formula that we feel is more versatile. The great thing about our Rust Dust is you can use any paint color you want. You don't have to paint your object grey. We use black latex paint the most, and as the paint becomes tacky, you sprinkle our dust on the paint and then spray it with our activator. What makes Rust Dust great, is our product is on the surface of the object so less activator is needed. Also NO HEATING is required to activate our dust. Last time I checked, paint is flammable, and applying a heat lamp to wet paint may not be the best idea. You'll see results within an hour, or whenever the activator is dried. We usually place fans in front of our objects in order for them to dry faster. Also with our product you can control the color of rust you want. Less activator will give you a bright, orange color, and more activator will give you a deep, red color of rust. Below are some examples of foam props we've rusted with Rust Dust. If you'd like more info, contact me directly through a PM or jlawason887@gmail.com Thanks! 1296612967129711297212973 If

another latex paint and sawdust job...

It's not the same, I know- but for large items it works great.

I used it to rust some conduit attached to my meat wagon used to pull patrons around Camp Nightmare. Worked great by dabbing on with a brush and spraying the activator. A little time consuming because of th surface we were painting but I cant think of any other way to cover PVC like this and get rust.

Dr Torture send me more data. I like this application better than the other.

Hey Allen, take a stiff brush and go over the rust to give it a dusty, dirty look. That will also blend the colors and brighten it up if you want that effect.

If you have any questions about applications, let me know. Thanks!

It does take a little time to apply the dust to certain objects. But the cool thing about it is, you control the areas it sticks to by what areas you paint. Any form of adhesive that stays wet for a few minutes will allow you to apply the dust, but we've found latex paint works great. Also it's a good idea to lay a large piece of cardboard, or plastic down around the object you're rusting. That way you can catch any dust that falls off and reuse it. We keep a 5 gallon bucket around to catch the excess dust for smaller objects, and it also serves as a good container to store the dust in. You want to keep it as dry as possible before applying it to your objects.
