I have been playing around with the rusting kits that you can buy at the craft stores. Here is a couple of items I am in the process of rusting right now. The first photo is of an item that has not been touched, the second picture is the same type of plaster piece with it's first rusting coat done, the third picture of the angel has had about 3 coats of the rust activator applied. I will be giving it a couple more coats until the patina is just right. It seems the more you coat it the darker the rust becomes. You can see how orangy the second photo is with just one coat. This stuff is so much fun. I love how they turn out, they look great in the garden. I do need to put a sealer on them because the rust will run in the rain I am afraid. I don't want any marks on deck.
