I was tweaking the material of my 3d model of a rifle and so I managed to create realistic gun metal material but something is missing, the edges need to have the paint worn off. Can I simulate that effect within blender cycles without doing some extra Photoshop work? Can you give a brief example node set-up?
Take a look at this thread:
Also take a look at the material about half way down this page - might give you some pointers
also maybe take a look at this tutorial
