FingerPrint Jewelry

| | |

I have been making hand stamped jewelry for 7 years now and I just love the art of this process.  It centers me.  But as you run any successful business, you need to offer new products to keep customers buying.  I would like to offer finger print jewelry this year... but need to sub out the orders and collaborate with a true silversmith and artist.  I am not at the point right now where I want to get into that skill set, but would like to work with someone.. .I'll sell.  You make.  We each add a successful business component to our studios.  If anyone is interested in this, I am in NJ - my web site is or!/pages/SugarTops-LLC/127291599159

Getting oil off metal..

| |

Hello, New to the site. Hopefully someone will have answers for me..

I want to rust 14 gauge flat rolled steel. I guess there are a couple of questions... I am having the hardest time getting the oil off the newer metal so I can rust it.  I have tried acetone, thinner, de-greaser, dawn, vinegar, oven cleaner (bad stuff), and many others.  When I rinse it off after cleaning.. I can still see the oil on it! Some of the time it works... I don't want to go to the acid.. that scares me.  Is there a difference in cold rolled vs hot rolled in terms of rusting?  Any comments would be appreciated!
