Step 4 Mark the face, Attach horseshoe nail beak and weld detail eyes.

Step 5 Place in an Acid bath, leave overnight and water in the morning .

Step 6 Using a different acid, hand paint the details you want black, cover the tummy to protect from laquer, and  spray a clear coat laquer on the rest of the Robin. The breast is not laquered to allow it to continue rusting to provide a contrast to the rest of the Robin. The Robin is available on a stand or on a spike for the garden.
