Started working on these 2 on Monday and just thru with them this afternoon. They were pretty rust so I had to take it slow and easy but in the end the came out very well. After the electrolysis got all the rust off, my magic elixir got them in museum display quality.

Beautiful work! Richard you are real artist with rusty metal

Thanks. I have done a bunch of them over the years. Back in the old days I would have to take them out of electrolysis and them put them in the over on about 300 for a few hours and then boil in wax. The magic elixir cuts out those steps and when put on after drying it goes on white, turns purple and then the black finish that you see and they are preserved.

Plus, you don't have to answer those uncomfortable questions such as: Why is there a cannonball in the oven...? :nah disagree:

Can you say where it is these were found?
He does do nice work, but when I asked him, he just smiled and said: In the ground. :banghead:But that said, I must say that he is usually pretty good at providing information and that I just seem to be his favorite victim for the sharp edge of his tongue.
