One last Rusting Experiment...
Click Images to Enlarge:
It's inside this large bundle in the back yard...
Cement Blocks are placed on top to keep pressure on the fabric so it makes contact with the rusty metal.
This has been here for 3 days in very hot weather, which makes the rusting go faster.
Cement Blocks and Plastic Removed:
Lots of Rusty Color...
The Fabric is still wet with Vinegar at this point...

After Drying Overnight...
The Culvert Screen underneath the fabric created a beautiful rusty grid across the surface of the fabric
I flipped the fabric over to the back side...
The rusting looks different on the back side.
Where the fabric touched the metal, it created white marks.

This is a 2 yard piece of rusted fabric.
Quite a variety of rusting designs throughout this one piece.
Tips: The culvert screen was very rusty to start with.
The weather was very warm, which helps the rusting process.
The bundle was wrapped tightly in plastic to keep it wet.
Heavy blocks were placed on top to keep pressure on the fabric to remain in contact with the rusty screen.
