Default Acid and the use of Oil

Lets pretend I don't know. Having used the Acid to change rust into a nice oxide, do I now use Boiled Linseed Oil? After applying the Boiled Linseed Oil, do I wait for it to dry, or just attack it with my rosebud and cook it? If I do use a Rosebud to cook it, what do I look for to determine if I have done it correctly. Also, what do I look for to determine if I have done it wrong and need to start over.

Well, there's a right way, and there's a slag way.
The right way is to apply the oil to a heated surface, and maintain the temperature for a few hours, around 350* I beklieve.

The Slag way, well, soak it in oil, and set the oil on fire with the rosebud, and see how it works.

Either way, its' cooked when the oil looks black and is dry.
Do NOT use your finger to determine if the oil on the hot steel is dry.
