    rusted artwork

    I was buying a chemical called scale gone 55 and it would take any scale off and make my projects rust quickly and evenly. I cannot seem to get any reply. could anyone give me a name & address of another product. thanks

    be careful using the muriatic acid-don't breathe when using. i quit using it cuz i was tired of feeling like i was suffocating! the method i use is wash with oiler eater and rinse, spray on hydrogen peroxide and rinse. let dry, spray on a chemical i get from king architectural (i think it's amber rust but i would have to go check for sure) which turns the steel copper, keep spraying with water and let dry for a day or 2, then i spritz with krylon lacquer autumn brown which darkens the orangey-rust and also seals it (it does have a sheen tho). or use one of the powder coat "rust" finishes. if you'd like to see some pics of the finishes, let me know. cat

    scale gone = muriatic acid....?

    Chances are they are one and the same, just different packaging.

    Muriatic acid is hydrochloric acid.
