Basically yes to get the color and finish. I wanted an OD green but Rustoeum does not make one. So I did some searches online and found quite a few other people have made their own by mixing rustoleum Hunter green and rusty metal primer (which is like a flat brown). More specifically I used 1.5 qts of satin hunter green mixed with 1 qrt of the rusty metal primer. Some people said mix 1:1 but when I did that it was too brown for my taste. others say 2:1 but that was too green, so that's how I ended with 1.5:1I freaking love this, looks GREAT.
I also spray primarily Rustoleum products primarily because they’re so cheap.
So you mixed paint with the rusty metal primer and are using that as your paint? I’ve never heard of that honestly. Is that simply to get the flat finish?
Here are a few more after dropping the cage back in.
