Imagination Craft's Rusty Patina

Hi All You Fave Rave Bloggers out there, here is a brand new product we have just had delivered. I have to say I'm hooked already, with  Imagination Crafts New Rusty Patinas

And here's what I did using three of the colours that I chose to use. I took any ordinary glass bottle to decorate, although you can use it on many surfaces including card, MDF, Journals Glass Bottles Clay, Frames and much more, and it adds a beautiful textured, distressed or vintage feel to you piece.

Using the Rustique colour and a piece of sponge I used a dabbing technique to cover all round the outside of the bottle

As this dried (and it dries very quickly) I chose some embellishments including paper and card and wax cord for decoration which I also painted ( this time with a brush) with the Rustique

I then started to build up the layers of colours to give the final effect. I used the Verdigris and sponge (using the same dabbing technique) in random areas on the bottle and the embellishments 

 Once dry, I did the same with the Blanc

The combination of these colours gives a fabulous rusty effect
Finally once dry I added the embellishments with crafters glue and here is my final result, I am so pleased with it, as its the first time I have used it

I'm sure you will love these Rusty Patina's they come in six colours (Soot, Rustique, Duck Egg, Cafe Creme, Blanc and Verdigris) and are so easy to use with a sponge or paint brush, with endless possibilities as you can blend the colours together to give lighter or darker tones and of course you can get them from our shop Fave Rave
