Hi Joanna,

Sorry! I guess I could have explained what was going on. The first few are kind of self explanatory. The stuff all the metal is sitting in is called pickle. It's a slightly acicid solution that I heat up in a crock pot. The heat and water helps dissolve flux and other stuff and the acid eats away any oxidation on the surface of the metal that has been caused by the flame.
