Dixie Belle Patina!

Breath of Life Design: Today I decided to open up my Patina Collection from Dixie Belle Paint Company!

I had a letter 'H' for my photo wall that was pretty plain so I decided to spruce it up. You can pick one of these up at any local craft store!

I began by priming the letter, if you are painting the Patina Paints on metal you will need to prime it with a product called Prime Start sold by Dixie Belle Paint!

After it dried, I applied the copper paint. Once that dried, I then sponged on the bronze paint.

While it was still wet I sprayed the blue and green patina spray onto it.

Once the spray was able to react for roughly 4 hours, I went back through with a little bit of the bronze to tone down the amount of patina. The ending results were exactly what I was imagining.

This product is AMAZING. If you like to craft this is a must have. You can create anything with this stuff. Imagine using this collection on Christmas ornaments, wall art, furniture, etc. The possibilities are endless and this product allows for so much creativity!

    Could you do this on glass? Would you use the primer on glass? Would you use copper, iron and bronze at the same time?
