Easy Galvanized Metal Aging Technique

A comparison test between two methods to create authentic patina on galvanized surfaces...
Compare 2 Methods for great results!
I love galvanized items - can't seem to get enough of them. BUT, I'm not so thrilled with the super shiny finish that most of them have. A bit of patina is in order....
Nice - but too shiny!
Like many of us, I've been following several different techniques to achieve the aged charm that appeals to my grungy heart. There are some excellent tutorials out there, and maybe you've developed a method that we should all know about (hint, hint)!
I thought it was time to do my own comparison test, to see which of two methods will give consistent results...
Now, that's more like it...
To see the results of this little experiment, join me at The Graphics Fairy to get the skinny! Hope to see you there...
Take Care,
Heather

      @Lucy B Thanks, Lucy - I love both these methods. But then, I love ANYTHING that will give me the weathered and aged surfaces I crave!
