How to make a metal plate
Step Two:This procedure is a choice you will have to make about how you want the patterns to form. Just make sure you do a random pattern oppose to a uniform one. The randomness of the pattern adds variable interest to the overall look of the completed steel plate. But as always, you decide.
1. I started off by taking the smallest brush with its short bristles and dipped it into the rust pot and dabbed it onto the cardboard. I made small dabs at various intervals, randomly. Then, I took my medium size brush and did the same but with much longer dab strokes moving around at various areas. I left small spaces at various intervals as to not cover some of the black spray paint I did earlier. Itís good to let some of that black show through.
Pigment added to card. Just squash the coarser ones with a brush until it looks like the one in the photo below (click to expand)

The results of two different patterns made with the rust pigments. Try using both standard and light rust (like in the pics below) to vary the colors of the rust (click to expand)
Here you can see the various patterns you can get. Most of these are pure luck. Here, I used Migís old rust. So the rust color is darker than the other rust color, I used for this tutorial. Notice the metallic edges of the steel plate. Thatís the effect you get by applying the metallic color to the edges that you will do in the last step. (click to expand)
