TOPIC: Simple corrugated iron effect

Simple corrugated iron effect 09 Mar 2010 07:23 #1

As part of my "Duel In The Sun" GB I have built a corrugated iron barn. The effect is simple to achieve and is open to experimentation.

Take some corrugated card. Mine is flat on one side. This was glued to the structure and allowed to dry.


Next take some ordinary household aluminium foil and spray the shiny side with an aerosol adhesive.


This can be applied in small pieces as the overlap is barely visible. The edges can be folded over to give the impression of overlapping separate sheets of iron. This is then stuck directly onto the card.


Work the foil into the contours of the card with a soft sponge and a cotton bud.


Next add rust etc using rust powders and paints.




The foil can be scratched and raised to give the impression of lifting paint/rust etc. This process would also work on flat sheets of card to produce "sheet metal". I hope this is of some use to you.

Thanks

Your tutorial is great Treemendus, stunning effect on the rusted metal, can you explain the procedure? :woohoo:

Thanks very much. It really is quite a simple effect to achieve. I will put a short SBS together showing how I painted it as soon as I can.

OK here we go. Iv'e used the same method as above to create a piece of corrugated iron.




The three paints I used were MIG Standard rust effects, MIG Light rust pigment and a Revell enamel paint



First take the MIG Standard rust effects and paint the whole sheet. Try not to make this too uniform.



Next add some MIG Light rust pigment, again not all over, only where you want the heavier rust to be. With your finger or a cloth gently wipe over some of the sheet. This will remove some of the paint to reveal the shiny metal underneath. The more you remove the newer the sheet will look.



Below/around any small creases or in areas where you might expect to find the heaviest rust dab tiny amounts of rust coloured enamal paint.



In position over the entrance of the house. The whole thing will be weathered further later. This will knock back some of the colour and add more realism. This house will go on the same dio as the barn above. The corrugated sheet over the door should tie both elements together visually.





Thanks for looking

I was lucky enough to see this and the complete dio at the Moorlands model show a couple of weeks ago it is superb the detail is awsome and as you would expect the groundwork is fantastic :woohoo:

That looks fantastic Ant. I like the realism and added detail that it gives a diorama.
I will have to give it a try and see if it is easier than my current method which is to use a scrapbooking embossing template I bought a few years back for military modelling unrelated purposes. It is perfect for small touches of corrugated iron but after a while of dry embossing cut sections of cola cans one's hand and arm begins to want to fall off.
