Rusted Patina On steel

Help for my design project.

| | | | |
Hi,
 
I'm doing an MA Industrial Design course and my brief for this project is to design a gift. My idea involves metal art and the use of rust.
I want to create a piece of art where the metal will rust by itself into a specific image that I have previously created.

I'M NEW HERE AND I'M JUST STARTING TO FIGURE IT OUT. THIS IS MY SECOND EFFORT. 9'2" WINGSPAN. WHEN IT WARMS UP A LITTLE MORE HERE IN CENTRAL NY. I PLAN TO GET SOME PAINT ON IT. I JUST FINISHED THE TALONS, AND HAVE YET TO TEXTURE THE FACE.


Rust promoter

It's probably been discussed, but I can't find the thread. I'm looking for advice on promoting rust on mild steel to make new steel more closely match rusted steel. One of my sculptures uses weathered (well rusted) salvaged steel for most of it, and a few pieces of new 11GA mild steel scrap.
