Weathering without oils

Hi there,

I'm wanting to effectively weather my M4A2 Sherman (on Saipan) with some dirt and rust smears down the hull and turret. In all the articles I've seen, people use oil paints to get this effect and smear them down with thinner.

I'm really short on cash at the moment, and I use acrilics. Is this effect possible with acrilic or should I wait and get the oils?
