there is a very good technique called stippling, where you get a small amoumt of paint on a brush, a medium drybrush is good for this, and "dab" it onto the model.

if you use this technique and the following paints in order, then you can get any amount of rust you want, just stipple for longer

first, bestial brown
then, 50:50 bestial brown to blazing orange
finaly blazing orange

id try it out on a spare model first to get the hang of it before you try it out on a precious model

hope this helps

Moved to Modelling and Painting

Depending on what you want your rust effect to be on, not so good for detailed work but good for vehicles and such:

Try running some super glue along areas you want to look rusted then dust the glue, while its still wet, with baking powder. It sets the glue instantly and gives a great textured surface. Then stipple with browns, blacks and oranges until you get the desired colour.

Its worth experimenting on some old card or something first, just to be sure of what you're doing and likely result first.

As rusting occurs faster with water than air the highest concentration of orange is where rain, &c. would pool, so I usually paint an orange wash over the stippling to add dribbles and pooling.
