Rust-Look Paint

Just wondering if anyone knows about this rust effect paint?

I've seen a squareback & an old splitty bus that have been completley paitned in it... looks like its done by brush or roller.
Any info on who/where/what would be appreciated.

Tea bag. Seriously.

But, there's no replacement for real patina and aging.

isn't that the ferric oxide? they call it anyways... the paint that is.
Practically spreadable surface rust with resin in a drum, for that oxide look :P

A decent autobarn would be ur first starting point i guess.

make your own, iron filings, allow them to rust, then mix them with clear laquer, or scrape or wire brush flaky rust into a pedstle and morter, mash it up to dust then loosly mix it with clear laquer.
spray the laquer onto seams and dings. rusty finish without the rust!!
