Thanks.
Yes, Paint is image-editing software like Paintshop Pro and Photoshop - it just doesn't have all the advanced bells and whistles that most people will never use.

I did graphic design and print design - newsletters, flyers, brochures, etc. - for years. I'd never have the patience to clean a gun to the metal and re-blue it, though

Absolutely. Variety is the spice of life! Sure would be boring if everyone did the same things

Here are some pics along the way, PAG. This will save you (and me) from wading through the What are you doing? thread
It was actually finished at one time with a nice hot blue, but I decided I wanted to rust blue it, which is more durable. It's the way they used to blue metals and many think the better way, but it's very time consuming. Layers of rust, boil it black, polish off the dust, repeat. I had to strip all the finish off it to get started. That was the point of no return.






Thanks Pac! Interesting process. It's funny to think of corrosion, something most people try to protect against, actually being a part of a finishing/protectant process.
