STEP BY STEP
Every once in a while you happen to stumble onto something mighty interesting on the world wide web..
In this particular case it was a video tutorial by Alex Varela (a.k.a. Iguazzu) in which he explains, step by step, his technique to paint realistic metal surfaces in acrylics.
No matter which medium is used to paint, one should always be on the look out for new techniques that can be adapted or copied to one's own advantage.

Many thanks to Alex for taking the time and effort to create this tutorial and share his techniques. And he promised to come with some more in the future...
