If you ever want to rust something really fast use a mix of 1 part clorax and 1part water. Heat it in an old stainless pan outside on a coleman stove or forge to a low boil. Viola ..rust. And I mean in a hurry.

Very cool Pedee! I like that the pieces aren't so abstract that you can't tell what they are.

You have a plan for a board?

I will take a plate of steel and clean it with a grinder. That will give the plate the same finish accross the whole board. To give the board a pattern. I will take tape and tape out a pattern. Then I will sand blast the squares that are to rust. Then treat with rust killer.

Writing this I just realized it would be easyer and probably look cooler if I grind the plate, rust the entire plate with hydrogen peroxide, kill the rust with ospho. Then tape the ones to stay black. Then bead blast to finish . Any ideas?

So this is first treated with hydrogen peroxide to rust, then ospho to turn it black. After today I laid the pieces out and marked the board. Then I masked it off and sand blasted it.

Here is my buddy enjoying the set. We played the first game and he kicked my butt.
Thank you to every one on here who helped me with ideas.
Sorry for the length between posts.
