Weathering Aluminum tubing

Recommended Posts

I worked with some sheet aluminum on a model a while back and I sanded it with 400-grit sandpaper to take the shine off. That suited my purposes. If you need it to look even dirtier, you might try adding a thin wash of gray or brown after sanding and then spray it with a matte finish to protect the wash.




Cheers -
