How to tone down silver paint?
I am trying to paint some boards to make them look like aged Galvanized metal.
My problem is that the project calls for a silver metallic spray paint. I was just wondering if anyone knew of how I could tone down the silver so it is not so shinny.
Thank you for your help

There are different shades of silver that is produced by Rustoleum that are very shiny to dull.
I would get a dull silver paint, Rustoleum is very good about having such choices. Hope this helps.
Yes, I bought a silver spray from Rustoleum that is not shiny at all but I’m thinking you can probably use a dark wax to make it look aged.
You can use a black tinted glaze medium to tone it down. Then you can also just buy some silver paint that isn't shiny.... https://www.amazon.com/Rust-Oleum-1614830-Multi-Purpose-12-Ounce-Aluminum/dp/B003UNB7TM/ref=asc_df_B003UNB7TM/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=198071503086&hvpos=1o3&hvnetw=g&hvrand=1237414938663551861&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9033057&hvtargid=pla-348598809806&psc=1
