Well done, dougy!
In order to give it a weatherproofing effect you must regularly wipe it down with an oil dampened rag. If it is left to dry out it will rust. Yes, oil can and will dry out of it.
Yes, it can and will attract dust, so don't soak it down, just a "dampening" effect of oil will do. That will help it to be not so much of a dust magnet.
It is sorta like Parkerising, but not as durable.
