LuAnn Kessi: Creating rusted fabric panels. Use quality broadcloth, sock fabric in vinegar, wrap fabric around rusted item, secure fabric with rubber bands or wire to keep rusted item in contact with fabric. Place in plastic bag, put in sun for 4-5 days (no peeking or opening bag), take out of bag to air out for last day. Soak fabric in bucket if water with 1 VIP baking soda + 1 cup salt. Next day run through washer and dryer.
