Rust - Open sometimes forgotten doors

Hello lovely followers and visitors, welcome to April!
As usual at the first of the month I want to share with you my work for the brand new challenge at Country View Challenges!
This month it is my turn to host the challenge and I thought the theme "RUST" would be fun. 
Vintage, old and rusted things are very common and I love this look.
There are many possibilities to create faux rust on your projects with different mediums and colors and even salt, vinegar and cinnamon are cheap and easy ways to get rust.
There are also paint systems, gathered together for perfect rust look and several good commercial rusting products on the market.

I want to show you some ways to get rust or a rusty look on your projects, so you easily can make your own rusty project.

1. Real rust and patina with vinegar and salt:
You can find a whole bunch of recipes for this way of creating rust. Next day I took them out and left them to react with oxygen.
 I tried it out with some metal pieces of my stash. I mixed water with salt and vinegar and put all metal pieces in there.
 I put it outside and left it over night.
Here you can see, how the metal reacts.







 I repeated the steps two more times and this is what I got:


Well, some of the pieces are rusted really good, some didn´t. I think, some are more suitable than others, so it is a bit of try and error.

2.  Rust with Acrylic paint and cinnamon:
This is a very easy but effective way to create rust. You only need acrylic paint in brown, maybe in 
yellow and turquoise or blue and white, some gilding wax or metallic acrylic paint and of course 
cinnamon.

Paint some corrugated cardstock (I teared it into pieces for my project), cardstock or whatever you want with brown heavy body acrylic paint.


Paint the whole surface with a generous layer of paint

Now sprinkle into the still wet paint cinnamon.
By dabbing gently over it, you make it stick to the surface.
You also can mix it with your brush at some places with your acrylic paint using your brush. You will get a nice texture!

You can repeat the process, until you are satisfied with the result.
Very easy to do - and it smells good! :-)









To give your rusted project the final touch, drybrush some blue/green/turquoise paint and metallic wax on top.














3. Rust with ironpowder and oxidation medium:
There are many kits, sets and mediums out there on the market. I didn´t try them out, so I can´t tell you, which one would be the best.
I used the rust effect set from LaBlanche. You can find a good instruction video here


Paint a gessoed surface with acrylic paint and add rust powder and/or patina effect powder.








Sprinkle the activator (different colors) on top and leave it over night. It needs time to react.











These are the first three possibilities to create rust. If you come baack the next days I´ll show you some more!

And here is my project:


And some close ups:




I hope I could inspire you with my "rusty door-part" and you will join in with our challenge this month!

Have a nice weekend.
