    I sprayed on the VHS solution, let it oxidize for a few hours, then neutralized it with the sodium bicarbonate solution. I saw that the rust was a little bit to orange, so I began to tone it down a little. I also started using my rust powder that I had made earlier in April. Here are a few shots so far.
