Here is a before and after of what Patina looks like on ceramic!
This is a close up of the final product! The piece looks completely different now. It is perfect for a center piece!
You can see it is rusty and old looking with blue patina layer. This was a gold dish just like the one pictured above to start with. To achieve this look complete one layer of Patina Paint and allow to dry. Complete another layer of Patina Paint and while its wet activate with Patina Spray!
After the process takes place the piece may be a little dusty. You can simply wipe it clean with a damp cloth!
