Mary says: Jan...Refresh My Mind...

Mary says: When you want to transfer rust item to cloth, do you make the cloth wet first?


  1. I don't know how Jan does it, but I dampen the cloth with white vinegar, wring it out, put the rusting material in/on it then seal it up in a plastic bag and try to be patient. (Jan will tell you I'm not good at this part and she's right...)
    But there are a few different methods for rust transfer....this is just what I use.


  2. Mary says: Thank you, Anne. That is so helpful. My husband did two metal works of a raven and whale in coastal Native American look. They have rusted (we live on the WA coast) and thought they might really be neat on fabric. I will try it! Thanks for your help. Mary
