Going down memory lane,..I actually liked that song "Diamonds and Rust."

Can't afford the first...but as to the latter.

Plain old rust makes nice speckles...well worth a try.

Dry out that steel wool pad disintegrating in the kitchen soap =3D
dish--just ignore the soap-- and pulverize it...Not too much just =3D
so....Test in a high magnesium glaze opacified with titanium...Nice.

You also can crawl under the vee-hickle armed with a steel brush and get =
some of that rust (wear safety goggles when steel brushing. ) Or, in =3D
case your pickup is as old as mine, just break a rusty bit off the body =3D
and pound it down to crumbs....

Just remember_rutile is titanium plus iron.
