How to make a metal plate
Step Four:In this step we will be adding some high lights to the edges of the cardboard/steel plates to accentuate the look of steel. In other words we will simply be dry-brushing around the edges. Citadel's Leadbelcher this is a steel metallic color, but again, you can use any brand you prefer. I just like Citadel colors for brush painting. Just remember to use one that is not too shiny. More of a 'p encil dull look’ is what you want. Or simply put; you can just as well use a pencil with similar results. Although, I do prefer the paint method.
1. Take your Wide/medium flat brush and dip it into the pot. When you remove it make sure you have a kitchen towel ready, as you will be removing much of the excess paint off until there is almost nothing left to remove.

In this photo you can see the difference with and without the metallic edges. The edge on the left does not have any metallic paint. The edge at the top has a metallic paint applied. (click to expand)
