Default Re: Patina question

If the rust is real flakey wire brush or wire wheel. if you get down to shiney metal paint some Muriatic Acid on it, let it sit a couple minutes then rinse with clean water. Metal will be etched and a dull grey, for about 1/2 hour then a nice rusty patina will start to form. You can splash the Muriatic all over. get it on the existing rust too. Will help clear off the chunky stuff. The longer you let it sit, the more rust it will take off.
