A Rust Dyeing Visual

Lay out fabric to be rusted most any fabric and surface WILL rust so be sure to protect your work area with a plastic drop cloth!

Arrange rusty objects into a pleasing pattern.

Spritz with vinegar

Cover with plastic 24 hours, the plastic keeps the fabric and rusty areas moist.

Remove plastic to check progress, if desired rewet and cover again for darker richer markings.
