Faux Oxidation Technique
An easy paint technique to add faux oxidation to metal objects. Gives that aged, antique look to new metal.
Give metal objects an oxidized look using just gray craft paint and water.
Thin the gray craft paint with lots of water. It may pool on the bottom edge but that's ok. The brushstroke lines will bleed together giving a softer look.
This is after one coat. I added another coat. Just remember to keep your brush really wet. The water is key to softening the lines and causing the color to pool in certain areas like it would from being exposed to the elements for years.
And here it is finished! See more pics on my blog, http://thealteredpast.blogspot.com
