SK's Old Pine to Copper


A fun project using some specialty paints. Modern Masters Oxidizing paints and texture from Wood Frosting. These oxidizing paints are amazing to watch. You never quite know what you will get till it done. Using Wood Frosting I frosted the wood to look like old metal texture. I then used Modern Masters Copper metal effects paint. With a green oxidizing effect. I added curtain finials for feet and covered the interior with black painted beadboard. I am excited to know this piece is going into an artist studio as display piece.

    Wondering your thoughts on this piece and if this finish will "work". Read information on their site- concerned how much I will need.
