    I worked with some of the rust paint at a shop I used to work and and figured I'd give it a go on a set of frogs I had sitting around unused. They turned out reasonably well for a first attempt on sunglasses.

    They've got a fair amount more color in person. In the photos the colors are a bit subdued.

    Nice job! Did you clear coat it? It usually tends to darken the rust effect when you clear coat it but it stops the oxidizing process of the rust and protects it.

    Haven't cleared it yet. If you do very light coats just mist the clear on you can keep it from changing the color of the rust too much.
