How to duplicate dust

RELATED TOPICS: WEATHERING
Tip: I've been working on a 1966 Ford Galaxie junker, complete with a well-worn, dirty interior.

To duplicate the dust that has settled all over the interior, I used ... dust. Vacuum-cleaner dust, that is.

Just open a vacuum-cleaner bag, grab a pinch of dust from the bag, and sprinkle it over the car's interior while the paint is still tacky. Shake off the excess when the paint dries. Vacuum-cleaner dust goes on like flocking, only dirtier! Give it a try.
