I looked at those shots and I thought, "Man there must be some killer acid rain in that part of the country if it could rust that much in 10 hours." Then I was saw it was Aggro magic. Good job.

OH Man, I know what you did, you have a shrinking machine. That's not the same model, it's a real one you shrunk!!!
All kidding aside,

Actually it took more 10 days total. That collective 10 hours is spread over a long time. Work goes on it here and there. And the curing dullcote between layers is what really kicks the completion date back further.

Dude....I used all matter. Polly S paint, artist oils, gouche, Floquil, Walmart acrylics, water colors, bragdon weathering powders.
But in exactly what order kinda has to remain a mystery. :)

I can tell you it was faded with Polly S reefer white thinned with 91% alcohol.
