Hi all, who can tell me which color(s) to use for a zinc roof? I'm getting a new project and need to paint the roof of a ruin.

My thank in advance!

Aluminium or medium grey - Black wash?

Don't really know, just a suggestion.

I agree with Peter. Aluminium but slightly dark washed and less shiny.

I suggest a blueish medium grey, totally matt with absolutely no metal shine. Black wash is a good idea, and a layer of light grey drybrush on top.
This recommendation is based on quite extensive research (I had a look at my rain gutter, which is made of zinc).
