That is pretty much all there is to it. The important details to remember are to apply the rust blue solution very sparingly. Do not slop it on and smear it around, it will not work properly if you do. The parts must RUST. Boil the rusted parts for a full thirty minutes in pure water, either RO water or distilled. Repeat the rust -boil-card at least six times. Things must be 100% oil free at all times. Even the oil from your hands is way too much oil. Then be sure to seal the metal once you have achieved the level of blue that you are satisfied with. It is all there in that long, long post on the other website.

Those results are just amazing! Makes hot bluing look simple by comparison!

Except that with rust bluing there are no tanks of dangerous caustic high temperature expensive toxic chemicals.

Just a simple bottle of iron rich acid and a vessel to boil some plain h2o in .

Really all you need is a little salt water and a tank to boil water in.
