I love the effect!

Instead of soaking it, I would place the piece on a plate and spray it with water from a squirt bottle every time I walked by. let it dry in between because the exposure to air is what causes rust (oxidation), not the actual sitting in water.

This is a great piece! I love the gif too. I too pick random shinny and rusty things off the ground.

i need to do more things with the endless pieces i pick up.  i like the mixed media portion of this.  and how the rust has taken over the yarn/fiber.
