For a project we are trying to achieve a steampunk look and feel.
Certain props need to get the look of copper (slightly weathered, not green shaded - but darkened) and others silver (shiny).
We already applied some paint, but unfortunately are not that satisfied with the achieved results so far.
The way we build up the layers:
For copper: 1. Modern Masters Primer 2. Modern Masters Copper Paint (applied with spray gun).
For silver: 1. Motip Black spray paint 2. Liquitex Silver spray paint (water based)
It just misses that extra feel to bring it to live, and the look as if it's really metal.
I'll add some pictures of the current state.
Any help, advice and tips would be very appreciated!
