Looking to "weather" a sword for a display (meaning make it pitted, rusty, old, etc), and need a decent way to do it.
The blade is carbon steel, it's a cheap wall hanger sword.
Would oven cleaner start the job easy enough, or would I be better off just throwing salt and water on it?
Kinda thinking "attack with crazed dremel tool" and then spray oven cleaner on it, and after a few coats hitting it with vinegar to stop the reaction.
Anyone have any ideas?
