Q: How do I cut and prepare rusty tin shapes?
  1. Rub rusty tin lightly with a soft, dry cloth to remove excess debris and smooth the surface.
  2. Transfer traced pattern onto rusty tin with white graphite paper; press very hard with a pencil. Or cut out traced pattern and trace around it on rusty tin with a soft lead pencil. If using a pencil, trace on opposite side of the tin than which will be showing.
  3. Cut out tin shape with scissors. Be careful not to cut yourself. Be sure to trim as smoothly as possible, eliminating sharp edges. Avoid spurs.
  4. Hammer edges flat, if needed.
  5. Drill holes, if needed, with a drill and drill bit.
