Painting rust is quite easy. I like to start by brushing on a very thin layer medium. This serves to oil out this section of the painting and provides a "couch" of medium to paint detail into. Then I'll add some of the finer rust texture with a worn out bristle brush. I paint the larger specks with a small round. Finally, I dab on the highlights a bit thicker to give them a more real appearance.
