COLORING CORRUGATED METAL

Description of finishing techniques

Corrugated Metal

My corrugated metal castings can be used for roofs or walls as shown above on the Minden Flour Milling Co. Actually, it is a combination of my castings and the raw material. I used the casting to save time but on the roof overhangs I wanted those very thin edges- so I use Keystone Locomotive Works corrugated metal cut into four foot wide panels for the seamed appearance.

Coloring them is very simple. Just paint with Floquil Old Silver. If you are matching the metal product with the castings you might want to spray them both with a gray primer first. Since many people don't like to spray metallic paints you can just brush them on. In fact, the streaking works to our advantage in giving the panels a weathered effect. You can then dry-brush on as much rust and dirt as you like. I sort of prefer not to overdo this and just left the Minden Mill finished with just the Old Silver and it looks fine.
