While I was out of commission, I was able to surf the net. I came across this site frogdogstudios.com. They have mixed media kits, so I decided to try a month to see if I liked it. I ended up getting the February and March regular kits, the March add-on, and a few extra goodies. One of the items in the March kit was rusting powder by Dusty Attic. I have to admit I was a bit of a skeptic as I love my rust and I am a faithful user of the Modern Masters Metal Effects Iron Paint and Rusting solution. I decided to just play with it on some altered altoid tins. It was very easy and much faster time to prepare than the MM brand. (Just paint your tin with glue - I used modge podge, sprinkle on the powder, spray with white vinger, and wait 15 minutes). Easy peasy. (However, I do not like the smell of the white vinegar and it smelled to me like bad easter eggs). Well worth the smell though. The out come was a beautiful rusted piece.
