So I have been working on this gate for a while and it is finally finished. This thing is heavy! I used #14 rebar for the frame and 1/2" for the pickets and 3/16" for the wrapped ties. It is finished with a copper sulphate rust patina and an arylic matte clearcoat. The clients just love it and their neighbors are a little jealous. I want to thank this community for sharing ideas as you can see some of the design elements are borrowed from others and some are new. The bolt heads were drops from a local scrap yard that turned out to be tool steel that I could not drill so I had to plasma cut holes in them to weld a lag screw into them to make them work. Lots of extra time that I did not plan on :( In the picture of the snake you can see a reaction from the clear with the copper. It has been fixed and looks better now OOPS!

I have found under a clear powder coat finish on steel a squiggly line of what looks like rust.

meganpegan81 - Thursday, April 8, 2010 - 7:02amrust
Im wondering if anyone could help me about dyeing fabric with rust? Im particulary interested in quickening the rusting process and ways of creating diffrent colours of rust. Im also interested in the corrosion of copper and again quickening the process.Im also interested in the conditions of the rusting material eg. river bed, buried underground. If anyone could help it would be very much appreciated as its for a school project.
