Creating rust texture on beaters

Tip: Here's my solution to creating rust texture on beaters. After creating rust holes in the typical fashion (grinding from the back and poking holes with a pin or knife blade) I texture the surrounding area with sawdust. I keep a bag of fine sawdust from my table saw on the workbench. Just sprinkle the sawdust into the wet base coat of paint.

After the texture is applied, dust on one more thin coat of body color to blend it all together. I've done this on two models so far, and they are always the first ones that people notice.
