Make sure u dont get any of the copper wire in it.It will Oxidize it making it blue an Unpure. Also U might want to try this for faster rust. Get a no soapy steel washing pad.Wash it in vinegar to remove the oils.then  want to let it dry.then Put a match to it or connect it to a dc power supply.it will almost instntly turn red and crumble into rust.By the way u need Iron III Oxide .let the rust u collected sit out for a week. then heat it in a cast iron pot till bright red.Voila.ur welcome.
