    I want to make my plates rusty

    People spend a lot of time on here refurbing plates and making them nice and shiny new looking. I however like plates that are rusty. I know how rust forms but is there anyway to speed up the process?

    There are rust stabilizers, but I think they'll change the appearance of the rust. I did a quick search and found this article. It mentions a product called Penetrol. The article says to use Penetrol as a base coat and then lacquer over that.

    there are ways of making things rust quickly, I'm really into classic/vintage cars and bikes, and there's guys who think rusty cars look good, so they take all the paint of so its bare metal, and sometimes sand the metal bodywork alittle to make it more vulnerable to rusting, and leave it unprotected against the air, humidty, rain (they rot fast as faak up here in Scotland you dont even need to try, it goes fast already, we get SOOOOOO much rain it sucks) And it forms a layer of surface rust on the well, surface!, but not deep enough to cause any damage to the bodywork, then I think some of them get technical, as this is when they have to stop the rusting..
    I believe there are sprays and such that you can buy which are supposed to stop it rusting any further (i think they lie, i dont think you can quite pause it like that) then they lacquer it, (clear) and it looks rusty but its actually fine.
    But I think i've gone abit overboard here with my answer, you wont have to go to those lengths, they do all that because they're trying to make it rust and at the same time control the rust, because the cars are very valuable, so you dont let them rust too much, but just for weight plates, its ok, because they're afew inches thick and you wont damage them with rust.
    Have fun mate!

    I was looking for a patina. Not that red orange dusty rust. You can easily get that by leaving bare iron moist. Could do it in a few hours for the surface. But you don't really want that messy crap. You want a dark brown patina.

    I used to do a lot of blacksmithing and quite often customers would want a rusted finish...since time was an issue I used a simple home brew solution. (wear latex gloves when you do this)

    Salt, vinegar, and hydrogen peroxide. 4:1 hydrogen to vinegar, bring to a boil and add salt until it's saturated.

    Make sure the plates are stripped of any paint and/or oil and (preferably) dip them in the boiling solution. If you don't have a large enough pan, you can spray them with a spray bottle. Remove them from the solution and use a toothbrush and lightly brush away any loose particles, then apply the solution again. It may take 3-4 dips before it's on thick.

    You can stabilize the rust after this if you desire, or simply leave them as is.

    You can also do things like burying them in soil, then pee on them every chance you get...or just simply leave them outside for a few months (depending on how often it rains). In any event, make sure you remove any paint or oil (including any from bare skin contact) for maximum rust.

    Yeah I kind of miss my old rusty 40 year old plates that I painted over, I should have kept that natural patina...it wasnt even rust, just over time the finish all wears off and gives it that authentic used well work look. I dont think my painted plates will ever take on that look by themselves...really regret I didnt keep at least one set of 45s like that...they earned that look with time and wear and I just painted over...

    Damn...

    Red and orange colours are forms of active rust. Black, brown, blue, etc (without red/orange hues) is more stabilized....in reference to iron. There are, of course, other colours of stabilized rust depending on the metal and solution used.

    So...it really depends on if there's active rust on what colour it will be. Salt and vinegar will first appear as an orange or red rust while it's still active. A patina is just a less/non active form of rust.

    So what's the process of getting to patina? Clean through active rust and keep applying salt/vinegar mix? Is this longer than your typical process was?

    I'm okay with rust on plates as long as it's not heavy, but only if I use them in an unfinished cellar or garage. If I had rust on my plates in my finished beasement, my wife would kill me, and rightfully so.

    Raw metal, use a vinegar solution, or as Keet says, use heat. I've "aged" metals using both methods. Here in NC, with high humidity, it's not real hard by leaving them outside either. I don't think that you should have too much of a problem with the weather in England, lol.
