    Thumbs Up Cool gift idea! DIY!

    Advertisements
    I just saw this on another site and had to share it. It sounds awesome! I need to figure out where I can buy sheet metal in Korea; I think this would be a great gift.

    "You can take a small piece of sheet metal, cut it down to 8x10" or a similar size of frame, and write/draw something simple on it using a brush dipped in vinegar. Let the vinegar dry. Put it in a frame (without a glass cover). The words you wrote will develop in rust, which will continue to expand and develop over the next few years. Its like a garden!"

    I am pretty sure we did something like this in chemistry class in high school. The teacher has his class make christmas ornaments every year around this time.

    Wait, you said it would expand? Like, make the words unreadable? It sounds cute tho, did it say anything about having to be a particular type of metal?
