I wouldn't recommend that method. Rust is gross and a real metal pipe is dangerous, plus it takes years to rust something. No, it's so much easier to get a piece of PVC pipe and add an elbow section to it, then get some silver spray paint as the base, starting off with that. After it is as simple as using blends of red and brown acrylic paint until it looks how you wish it to be.
