    Looks really nice. My question is does this type of process hurt the collector/monetary value of a piece like sanding a stock? Thanks!

    For more ideas, down this line of thought, check out Mark Novak's videos on youtube. "Anvil".
    He does a similar thing and then follows up with a "steaming", to rust blue the items. Really evens out the finish.

    We had a thread here about a rust blue gun a couple years back. If you do that keep us up on how it goes, we could use the education.
