Ok, some people wonder why I want things to look rusty???...... but you crafty people know! I've been experimenting for a long time, and even tried the "real" 2 part rust paint with no luck. ( and it's very expensive) Alcohol inks work pretty well on bare metal, but in Africa they are not so available. I think the step by step explains itself........ Then I used StazOn inks for stamping.
