Default "Tea Pot"

I just finished cleaning a "tea pot"/humidifier. It had been painted a couple times, so I stripped the paint with lye and cleaned the rust in my e-tank. It looks great.

My question is, what next? Does it get seasoned just like everything else? Stoveblack? What is normally used for these?

Default Re: "Tea Pot"

The outside you could season with the same fats as you would a cooking implement, or perhaps mineral oil. The inside on these were typically rust-proofed by the calcium/lime buildup of hard water. You could also boil a large quantity of spent tea bags to get a buildup of tannin.
