Aged riveted metal

I am currently preparing for my next workshop for CVC which is again in Flitwick in Bedfordshire, all the details can be found on the shop website.

This board is to show how techniques can be put together for project making and includes .....

.... a faux metal effect which makes this tag look like aged metal as though it has been left out to the elements and weathered over a long period of time. In fact, would you believe the only metal on here is the chain?

The board the tag sits on has a three colour distress technique which also makes it look well worn and bashed about a bit - this technique will be for another workshop later in the year.

The cabinet card has been painted and then white crackle paste applied though a stencil before being given an antiqued wash.

Now Susan stocks the DecoArt products I am having great fun creating new effects for my timeworn projects.

If you can make the workshop we would love to see you.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.
