TIP: Finished in a natural rust patina, it needs little special care. However, rust is a dynamic finish. If temperature/humidity fluctuates it can flake a bit. This does not mean it is falling apart, but it can get messy indoors. To reduce shedding, spray on a couple of light coats of clear lacquer such as Rustoleum to seal it, without adding high gloss.
