Waiting for rust!!!

Waiting for rust!!!


This is my chandelier after I spray painted it. I put a salt scrub on it to speed up the rusting process. Hopefully the finished product will be up soon!

By salt scrub I just added salt and water( A LOT more salt than water) and rubbed it on places that I sanded down..so metal was exposed...and that definitely is helping speed up the process!

Thanks again for all your great comments and I cant wait to post the final product!!!

I usually end up sticking things in my garden through the winter months to rust them after I've spray painted. I also tried a rusting kit I got at Michaels, but didn't really like the look.
I can't wait to see what you have planned for this. Please keep us posted.
