This video shows you how to paint an object to make it looks like metal. To make an object’s surface looks like metal, you have to increase it specular level. Metal has more contrast and can bounce the light back compare to matte object. So you have to keep the specular level high or more contrast on the surface area that when you are trying to paint metal.

Listen beautiful relax classics on our Youtube channel.

The first step, I would just make a regular matte rendering on the object before I start applying the specular level or make a metal material. Having a good and solid form will help you get a more accurate painting when you are applying the metal material on its surface.
