Turn Brass into Ceramic
Typically I paint furniture and frames giving them a new look and a new life. I was up in Ottawa in September for a special event and saw this big beautiful brass lamp at a second hand store but was not in the position to purchase it that day. A few weeks later I was up that way to get some supplies and popped into that store and came home with several pieces including the lamp.

Terri K on Jan 18, 2014This is simply brilliant! I just love the way its turned out. I have two (cheap) brass lamps I've had for years and they're lookin' pretty tacky. I SO want to do this but have to ask, did you slightly rough-up the surface prior painting? Also, what kind of paint did you use on both the base, how did you achieve the antique whitening, and what paint was used for the shade?
