For those who love our genuine rust finish, we are having a sale on any rust items in stock. As some of you know, we accomplish this authentic rust finish by first sandblasting the ironworks and then putting them out in our rust yard. We spray them with salt water and let moisture in the air rust the steel. It depends on the weather as to how long it takes to achieve this authentic finish but a couple of months is a regular amount of time for the process to take place. If we have to speed it up, we spray alternately with salt water and water a few times a day for weeks. Once the patina is achieved, a dry green scrubby removes the loose rust before painting on our non-toxic orange oil finish. This arrests the rust process and provides a lustrous result after the excess orange oil is wiped off.
