Default An experiment in rust.

Let me know how this looks to some of you. It's an experiment in producing a partially rusted out panel on a 1/64th car like in my junk yard. This is a hot wheels Duece roadster. The inner fender panel was taken out with a dremel & replaced with one made of a disposable aluminum baking tin. The panel was pierced with a needle in spots & then had ferric chloride ( circut board etchant) dripped on it. The overall rust effect was Floquil rust sprinkled with a mix of baking soda & powdered brown chalk.

That looks like rust would look like if rust was on a rusty car that had rust on it I think. Then again I could be a little rusty on the rust situation. HA HA HA.

I'm not sure -- somehow it doesn't look just right to me.

Now wear rubber glove and in In a well-ventilated area with a fan or open air vented room or out side.Always wear goggles, gloves, and do not inhale the fumes. Do not use any metal containers, measuring cups .Put the metal in the solution and wait 30sec to a min your see it start to boil and smoke at this time work fast and remove it with Dermal Anchor Piercing Hemostat Forcep TOOL .or needle nose and into the water for 5min then put on paper towel to dry it be dark gray first but it turn into rust when drying . now clean up can and wash hand good .Please read This etching solution, while made with common chemicals, should command respect. It is dangerous to yourself and surroundings, treat it with respect.
