I first tried this technique in 2008 and just love the process-its simple and fun-and green-cause you use found rusty items, use vinegar and water, and I dyed many pieces from reclaimed fabrics-men's cotton shirts, linings from wool coats, silks, and more-just check your old clothing stash or visit your resale shop. I also love to use interior decorator samples, or rust over printed fabric for stunning results. Here is a video I did back when I first started.
Above photos all came from here with many more pages to view
Below are some of my pieces, with my most recent-apples and a bear
