Create a Copper-Blue Patina {on Almost Anything!}

2 Days
I love and and there's nothing that says "antique" like I'm going to show you how you can create a on almost any surface. I tried it on a wood picture frame, and a travertine tile (for a coaster).
Here’s what you need to get an antique-looking copper patina on just about anything. I used Modern Masters paint. They have some seriously cool supplies for paints and finishes (and they aren’t paying me to say that). I just found out about this so I can’t wait to try more! I used the Metal Effects Primer, Metal Effects Copper Paint, and Metal Effects Blue Patina Aging Solution.
Some other ideas I thought of that would work great for this:

Candleholders – wood, glass, metal

Flower pots – terra cotta or other

Wall art – lots of possibilities


Soap dispenser

Apothecary jars


Wood furniture – such as a small table or shelf

Outdoor furniture – such as metal chairs

Light fixtures
What do you think? So cute right?
