Re: Rusting Barrels
I have done a few Damascus but not nearly as many as just blue. I will etch usually after the boil and card. I will then rinse, card again, rerust, and repeat. I had a vat for the acid but ended up ditching it as I didn't have anymore to do at the time. There is another way of doing Damascus that Jerry Andrews does that doesn't use acid I think. If I were you I would reach out to him for advice as he is a wealth of knowledge. I know that when I get ready to do another I am going to try his way.
