Default Clearing/sealing rust??

Customer has this fence around the entire yard and even some metal work on the house. None of it was finished as they were looking for a rustic look. Problem is now that the rust is getting all over the stucco. Any ideas of a clear or rust stop to put on it that will keep the look in the pictures?

Oxalic and/or phosphoric acid for the stucco. You may need a few applications. The other part of your question is a coatings application I am not qualified to answer.

Default rust converter

Remove loose rust with wire brush in a drill. Wipe down with paint thinner or alcohol (anything but water) and prime the well adhered rust with a rust converter. I used NAPA brand converter 4 years ago on a metal roof. Just checked it last week and it's good as new. Sometimes you need 2 coats of converter for complete conversion and sealing. Then prime and paint.

Sorry I may have been a bit misleading. They want to keep the rustic look but dont want the rusting on the wall to continue to happen. So the priming and paint would not be an option. Thats why I was wondering about a clear.

No sanding required with devoe?? From what i have read it seems to be the case.

Wire brush - a fine to medium brass brush would work well here - followed by Extend, or another rust converter. That will turn the rust sort of black in color.

Any clear coat will be short lived in sunlight. Shellac might be better.

Personally, I usually find 'ironwork' works best with a satin or semi-gloss black finish. Might be what the customer would like. Heck, you can paint it 'rust' too

How about just painting the stucco?

What about applying Penetrol neat from the can. Its a rust inhibitor and dries clear so you can still have the rust look but the surface is coated to stop further corrosion.

There is a product called Everbrite to seal rusted metal and retain the look. It's used all the time to seal outdoor, metal sculptures and such.
