Can someone help me with creating a good rust appearance in Photoshop (if so, could you post an image with it?)?

I have no image up, but generally you should create some shiny grey metal, first (Use a photo of you can't do it as good), then you should care for the rust. Search for a nice photo out there if you can't do it yourself, and eraze the whole thing in 2 steps how you want it. First you use a very unblury erazor to give the thing a general shape, then go along with a quite blure one to improve this, and later use the smudge tool or anything else, just be creative. Then you should play around with the layer options. Try to make them look joined together with the "hard light" effect, for example, just check it out. There is no good way to describe it, the best way to learn is to develope an own technic ;) This is just a general guideline.

Thanks for the help! :beer:

This is what I had before I made this thread, but I wasn't entirely happy with it. I didn't use a photo reference or anything so it looks too bright to me.
