Need to paint ammo for P-51 - how to make "gold"?

I should paint it with a good "Gold" color (MM). When dry, a little wash  and the a light dry brush with a lighter shade of gold. Or another way is to paint mat black and when dry a brushing with "Rose" gold powder.

Hopes it helps.

Cheers,

Jamme

I saw a tremendous technique once where someone used Tamiya clear yellow over aluminium or silver. I've been dying to try it.

 

It really was very convincing, a great representation of brass.

It was so convincing I was certain I was having my leg pulled but no .... that's how it was done.

 

In fact, it was by Pfuf who's become a member of here I believe: I'm sure Johan wouldn't mind me posting a picture of the finished aircraft. I couldn't find the WIP but check out the "brass" radiator ring and bear in mind it's been dulled down and weathered as well.

Greetings Guys;

 

 

Sounds interesting ....... This may look good on the radiator of the SE-5.

 

Nice looking color for brass, also it looks to be lightly weathered ................... doggyh10.gif

I've saved on gold/copper/brass paint for yrs, by tinting silver with various yellows/oranges/reds/browns.

Otherwise the gold/copper/brass paint dries out long before I've used a third.

 

You can also vary the tones for more character and interest.
