Riveted Panelled Wall

I have been doing a bit of an experiment this week making a test  panel to mimic a steel riveted panel for use on one of the sets.

Again I used split lentils glued with super glue for the rivet effect

The wall was sprayed with matt black with several mist coats of silver on top, I like the effect apart from it is a bit too shiny giving off a glare.
