Rusting experiment

Three weeks ago I wrapped muslin around iron pieces left by the train tracks.
I wet them and added salt, and put them in ziplock bags, out on the porch.
Today I opened them and washed them out. Look at the great patterns I got!

  1. Great depth of color! Can’t wait to see what happens next!
    (Is that sunshine in your photo? No fair!)
    it is sunny and a cool breeze. Been outside all say.

  2. Wowsers, cool! Now what? Do it again to get more patterning ?
    The third one looks like a beach.
    I will do more today.
