I am in need of information on how to clean the rust from a hand saw so that I may paint a picture on it. Can someone help me, please. After I clean it will I need to seal it? Thank you.

My mother-in-law/artist paints on blades......

I use a wire cup brush on a drill to clean-up the surface........the rough texture adds to the can leave a rusted backside for effect.......

for a hand saw be sure to remove the wooden handle (four screws) before using the power brush.......just clear coat the wood the metal blade (I like an oil finish).......

many painting techniques utilize mixed-media.....consider adding a clear coat after the final painting for more durability.....

"...measure once.....cut twice....throw that one away and cut a new one...."
