Patina paint....help

I have a 37 Ford pickup under construction, want to do a patina paint job.
Truck will probably be close to original green,with red oxide coming thru.
Question is... should I paint it brown first then the green?
What's the best way to get the effect??? Just buff it or sand thru the green till I get the effect I want.........

I've never done it before....on purpose anyway! But I would lay the "primer" color down first, color coat and clear it, sand it to get the effect you want, then reclear it. Hope this helps.

I helped a friend do his patina on a 66 chevy truck.

We sprayed black epoxy prime first. Then paint the base color that you want to show through. Ours was black. Then paint the top color. Ours was red. These were done in single stage urethane. Now get out the 1000 to 1200 grit sand paper and start sanding. Heaver here, lighter there, until you get the look you want. and stop there. As long as you do not sand through the base color than you are fine and do not have to clear the paint because its single stage. With this kinda job if you want a mat finish and you clear it, you'll have to use a flattning agent in your clear.
