Michelle Wards crusade Nr:8/ Cheap tricks




Here are my cheap trick for Michelle Wards Crusade Nr:8 I love old rusty things. Unfortunately, they are quite expensive. I rust my metal parts myself. You must act in a small bowl vinegar and a lot of salt, then there you put during 24 hours copper parts (in Germany are cents of copper). After 24 hours you get the copper cents out and lay them on Tissuepaper(like toilettepaper). Then these get a green patina. Now in the vinegar salt liquid you lay, again 24 hours, all things you would like to rust (however, they must be of iron). After 24 hours you get everything again from the liquid and lay it on Tissuepaper. Then in the air the iron things catch in to rust.I hope you understand my explanation

I've been doing some rusting myself tonight although not with the vinegar and salt. I was playing with some of the Sophisticated Finishes Antique Solution (both rust and patina green). Your pieces look way better than the ones I've done---maybe mine will look better in the morning!!
