    looks like a few shots of brown paint over the finish, not really anything like battle worn paint jobs, but if its what the customer wants then that's all that matters i guess
    “No man escapes when freedom fails, the best men rot in filthy jails; and they who cried: “Appease, Appease!” are hanged by men they tried to please.”

    food for though for some of the members on here...

    It is not blue. I guess the sun made it look like that. He wanted it silver with a hint of tan to knock it down and the rust color all over.

    Agreed....I had done a darker finish to start...but he wanted it changed to a lighter shade.

    So BAM....what the customer wants....
    He said "make it look like John Wayne just pulled it from his saddle scabbard"
    Wood refinished as well.

    "Battleworn" ?? more like cyberpunk fantasy, they did a decent job creating some of the worn lines but but that bronze just doesn't work...

    I like the original job you did. The rust still looks fake though
