When I saw the Metal-ology Challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp and Show blog I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I wanted the box to have an old metal patina feeling. I started by covering the entire box with Modeling paste to give it some rough texture.
I did not have a good green patina paint color so I mixed white acrylic paint with Tumbled Glass and Bundled Sage re-inkers. I painted the box in layers with the Terra Cotta Paint dabber, Lumiere Metallic Olive Green paint, and my green patina paint mixture. At first I was not very happy with my results, but the more I added layers of paint, the more I liked it.
Stay tuned for more altered boxes and for the final storage unit. As always thank you for stopping by.
