Andrew Price shows us how to add imperfections with Blender’s Texture Painter and cycles nodes in order produce realistic rust on our models.

Andrew covers how to paint a texture mask that you can use to determine where things will go, and how to add paint chips and scraps to any model in Blender easily. Andrew even makes a case for why hand painting will beat out tiling or procedural shader effects every time.
