Tin with Painted Patina


I love finding new way to decorate these little metal tins. This time I took a 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" two piece metal tin and created a patina aged look with gesso and paint. First I used black Gesso all over the tin inside and out.  I then took the acrylic paint in two tones of blue and blue green and mixed each color into gesso until I liked the way the colors looked. I painted on many layers with this mixture and then crackle paint in between the layers. Fun textured look don't you think?

The embellishments were painted in the same way. In the next step I went slightly over anything with gold rub n buff. The inside of the tin only had black Gesso and rub n buff. I also added paper that I distress and inked.




Thank you for peeking in,
Hugs from Laurie Moore
