    Scope out Uncle Ben's crazy new apocalyptic fallout finish!

    Hey guys!!!
    So after doing swirls for years now, my mind got restless and started wondering "but what else can i do to make a gigantic mess at my house?"... and i landed on this! Its a cool finish i stumbled into utilizing copper and silver leaf, lots of distressing, and oxidizing all kinds of crazy colors out of that copper.
    I currently doing my 1987 RG550, and a buddy's old Jackson Fusion in this finish. They will be getting a clearcoat here soon, which will only make them even sexier. I'm really in love with this finish!!!

    And so you know... my RG550 is going to have a black smoked mirror guard, cosmo (gunmetal) hardware, and a set of beautiful worn covered Instrumental Pickups (HS configuration FTW!!!!) in it. Its going to be nuts. Anyway, onto the pics!

    Sweet. I do love me some worn metal. I was looking at doing a similar thing for a cosplay a while back but we were going to use a metal powder and spray it on, then use some kind of oxidising agent to bring out the rust.

    SUPER!!!! Love that stuff. And good choice with cosmo black hardware on the RG550.

    I usually dislike cosmo black hardware on EVERYTHING, but in this case, I actually looked at the pictures first and tried to imagine these with either black, gold or chrome and nothing worked in my head, so I was happy to read that you where going with cosmo this time around

    that looks great Ben. Love that finish.

    as well as you weekend wankshop, you should start a weekend paintshop series if you get the time. I'm sure there are a lot of people out there who would love to do something similar.
