    Please don't pee in the bucket. Acidic additives might speed up the process but, give a darker color that might as well be brown to black paint.

    For rust, you can start with rustoleum red oxide primer and put in a few dashes of yellow and green to shift it to an authentic rust color. What is red oxide? Rusted metal/ iron.

    I don't know how many people have a tint kit? Other colors of similar paint can do the same thing as tinting for small pieces.

    I have made special finishes and colors for even graghics on an expensive motorcycle paint job. You can convert any colorant into a matching medium by putting in the same medium or the catalyst to the final clear coat and nothing will turn on you in mixing mediums. Going backwards from that, you can create some cool one of a kind finishes by intentionally creating reactions between mediums.

    Even running out of a small hand mixed batch of paint and then applying another that doesn't match makes it all look more natural.

    This new small key board is going to cripple me.

    "small keyboard cripple you?"
    Gregg, you MUST have leverage over the small keyboard, your forearm is longer than it's key-stroke, right?
    On the other hand if it's cord is wrapped around your neck,all you can do is say "Uncle!" and submitt.

    Wipp, that's pretty good. I want to grind it off and prime it to keep the rust away!
