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!

Haven't posted for awhile here as I have been developing/experimenting to improve the medium. Hope this piques interest & discussion around here; a video about painting with fire and acid.
