Response to Weathering metal towing cables

I agree on the annealing part... if not they are way to springy.

I paint them a dark dark grey-brown like Testors Burnt Umber. I don't use anything with a reddish base... just dark and neutral. Then drybrush in greys and tans. A little rust pigment rubbed in and then rubbed off makes them look nice. I avoid a lot of silver or natural metal colors except maybe on the loops on the end.
