I personally use inks for it. Depending on the look you want will depend on the ink you use. For example, if I want my metal to look a bit older and weathered then I'll use black ink over it. Be sure you mix in some water with the ink though or you may get something darker then you were expecting. The amount of water to mix in again depends on the look your after, so I'd suggest experimenting a bit first. But, for some basic shading you'd want a good ratio of water to ink. For more weathered looking stuff use less water so the metal takes on a blacker look.

Once I've inked my metal I then go back to pick out some highlights with either the same metal I used as a base or something a one shade lighter, again depending on the look I'm after.

Optionally, just paint the gun a darker metal color and then go over it with a lighter metal for the highlighting. That way it leaves your recessed areas the darker color where your high points are the lighter color.

I'll get him to do that. He also left some skin unpainted which needs to be fixed...

It's not bad at all for a beginner but the gun needs some serious shading. What model is that? I like it.
