Back in the day we poured coca cola for rust on a wedge. Anyone have any new or better techniques to get a oil can wedge to rust faster ??

    Wrap it in a wet paper towel and sit it outside

    I don't know if this works but I have a wedge that has rusted very nicely. I keep it in the backyard to chip with and dip it in the pool sometimes to gets balls out. So I don't know if its the chlorine from the pool or just the sun that does it.

    Coke can be used to remove rust or a oil can finnish, not to create rust, and i never understood those who want rusty clubs but each to their own.
    Raw carbon steel will rust as soon as it is in humid air, and if you want a faster rust process, dip it in salt-acid and let it stay outdoor for a night.

    As a painting contractor sometimes we have to rust various metals for decorative purposes. If I was in the business of making rusty golf clubs quickly, use a mild solution of muriatic acid and copper. Vinegar works a little slower.
    A Google search on 'how to create rust on metal with chemicals' will explain various formulations. Please ignore any information about rusting galvanized metal. That is a completely different animal than what you are doing. Good luck with your project.

    i've made a solution of hydrogen peroxide, salt and white vinegar. it happens in SECONDS...just remember do a few coats, let it dry completely and then give it a light wash to get the rust residue off. afterwards - if you want, put some baby oil on them and it'll get less residue on your bag, other clubs, etc.

    Little vinegar, salt and hydrogen peroxide will really speed things along, especially if you warm the solution.
    The peroxide is the active ingedient in the rusting process.
