  1. Hi There, Awesome stuff!!! Brilliant. I came across this looking for ways to treat metal to get a weathered look. Maybe you or someone can help I’m making a dining table out of a sheet of mild steel and want to treat it somehow so it has a weathered look …pitted, worn, organically weathered and dark grey. Would you have any ideas as to how? I was thinking of randomly spraying a nasty acid over the surface or towing it down a gravel road for a bit… Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Regards Simon

      I would not drag it, that will create shiny abrasions. I would personally try to use some form of heat, acid is messy and hard to deal with when you have such a large project. Perhaps salt water if you desire the orange oxidation. A blow torch or perhaps rubbing oil and heating treating the surface then clean it with a high RPM wire brush or buffing wheel to get a more matte patina. Remember to use caution with any heat or chemical treatments. Pitting it would be doable with a Ball-Peen hammer but very heavy on labor. If you try dragging it down gravel it will create more of an extreme sand paper effect but you will need to darken and get a new patina on it after the treatment. One way to really discolor steel depending on the size of the piece would be to literally make a campfire on top of it and then spread the coals over the surface. Again that would depend upon if you had a safe place to do it legally. Sounds like a cool idea and project, cheers =)
