    Oh I so wish I didn’t see this post! Now I have to try it! 😉
    You did a wonderful job. I hope I see this at the Paris Flea Market.

  4. Oh my gosh that is amazing!!! I can’t wait to try this. Thanks for sharing. I’m following the Modern Masters Pin Board for more ideas.

  5. Superb, Karen!! I did the same type of finish on my house awnings and cupala, but used a different product. I am a confessed patina nut. 🙂 Want to join the group?

    WOW! I love this. You did an amazing job. Very lovely table. Thanks for letting us know about this product. I’ve never seen this before.

      You are so welcome Kathleen. I have worked with Modern Masters products for a few years now. It is fun to see the different faux finishing products they come up with. They play really beautifully with my beloved CeCe Caldwell’s paints too!

    I can think of a couple of rescued projects that would look great with a touch of patina. I’ve pinned this so I can find it when I get my garage cleaned out and have space to actually work on some of my projects.

    I can think of a couple of pieces that I’d like to mix and match… give wooden legs a metal top or a painted top some metal legs… hmmmmm.


    • GTC says:

      Jan your ideas sound gorgeous! It feels so good to get the garage cleaned out. I am in the middle of that process. Really fun when I find things I didn’t remember I had and get inspired all over again! Thank you for pinning the project!

    Freakin awesomeness! I was thinking about cladding my kitchen island in copper sheeting but now I might just try to do this paint effect, thanks for sharing!

    Karen as usual you have out done yourself again. I love this piece, it does look like metal. I’m going to have to try this on an old dresser so it can look like metal too. Maybe with some wheels, since I know you love them too. haha I think it would look good. Thanks again for the inspiration. 🙂

    I’m practicinging on a builders chandelier, just to see how this stuff works. The blue solution works okay, but not the green. Anyone else having trouble getting the solution to work?

    It’s important to get the base coat that works with the solution. I first bought a small container of copper that was not reactive. The label will say if it is reactive. It was a beautiful color but not designed for use with the patina solutions. So back to the store for the correct version. Be sure to read labels. Paint store people are not always aware of the details of new products.

    • GTC says:

      Good point MJ! You definitely want to make sure you get the REACTIVE paint to achieve the patina. What a great idea to try that on a builder grade chandelier. I have one of those waiting for inspiration to strike. I haven’t had problems with either the blue or the green. I have only worked on larger surfaces though. Have you checked out the Modern Masters FB page? You can post questions there too. Good luck!

      • mj says:

        Have not done anything about it except decide i don’t want to work with it further. It’s not a keeper.
        If I need metallic paint, though, I’ll definitely look at MM. I like the look of your table, btw. It turned out well.

        I’m not thrilled with the look of this chandelier, so will try spray painting the next one. No verdigris.
