How To Rust Metal

Step 1. In a disposable container, mix your Peroxide and Salt together.

Step 2. Brush on this mixture to the areas you'd like to rust.

Step 3. Cover the piece your working on with Seran Wrap. Allow to sit for an hour before seeing any rust. The longer you leave it on, the more it will rust.

Step 4. Wash your piece, do not scrub the rust. Now clear coat it to seal the rust.
