I remember someone asking me if it was possible to prevent a sword from rusting using water magic.  I've thought about it, and I think I've come up with the answer, but I can't remember who it was, so I'll just post the answer here.  

The short answer: no.  

Basically, this was how I thought about it:
I don't know how much the Ximaxians would have known about rusting, but I figured they must have noticed that it had something to do with moisture, implying that water is involved.  Considering the properties of metals, they probably consist mostly of earth ouns.  The explanation for rusting would probably have something to do with water ouns from the surroundings getting into the car'all of the metal and altering the arrangements of ouns in it causing it to become something somewhat soil-like (ie. rust).  I can see how water magic could be used to cause this artificially, perhaps even partially reverse it, but not how to prevent it.  Earth mgic might be able to do it though, since one of the qualities associated with it is a resistance to change.  Even so, I doubt it'd be easy to completely prevent the metal from rusting.
