Rust

Those pieces are awesome. How do you develop the rust? I have found that soaking sheet metal in a saltwater bath and allowing to slowly drain is the only way to get a natural looking and colorful orange/yellow rust.

yo thanks, yeah salt water

yo thanks,

yeah salt water is good, light acids like household vinegar and plenty of rain water, temperatures and length of submersion play a role too, have fun! post a pick of what your at!

Rust

I am still working on the best formula for the bath. I have found that if you over do it with the salt and acid (vinegar or muriatic acid), it can blacken and ruin the finish. I allow it to very slowly drain since the rust generally occurs on the surface interface with with the water. I also use an aquarium air pump to add O2, but should consider heating to speed it up. It usually takes me a week to get the finish. Let me know if you have suggestions. I will post a pic of my rusted leaves. thanks.
