    Of course I couldn't help but 'Like' this! What technique did you use to create your rust-ification?

    A few household spices and some water. When I have it textured the way I want.it, I will 'Set' it with some dissolved corn starch.

    This bike will smell nice in the rain if it ever sees it.

    Hehe. With the coffee cocoa and the clove, don't smell much if the Chile powder.
    I went for the red and brown spices. The coffee helps clump them together, the reds dry well, and the cocoa ends up washing and leaving rusty trail.
    Hehe,

    I remember that commercial from when I was a little city kid. ( before we moved to the mountains)

    Had another test ridewith the fake patina. New beer to drink is the result

    I wiped off the white runs left over from the dried corn starch.

    Well, after such a fun winter build off I ended up with a tank that needed a home.

    So for now, I put it on my beer bike.
