Patina Paint Brush Tutorial

Hello and welcome to my blog today!

My friends and I tried Finnabair ARt Extravagant Patina Effect Paste on a paint brush.

So here are the step by step that we did using Finnabairs You Tube video for a guide

So here is what we did
We glued on the objects with Glossy Accents to a paint brush and after it dried then brushed the entire brush and objects with Finnabairs Clear Gesso. Let is completely dry or things will be moving while you are trying to paint. lol

The next step is color them with the Brass Paint, then apply the green and blue, I did blue first and realized that we are supposed to blend both green and blue together but not completely.  Also note that I have a heavy hand, there is a lot of the paint on mine verses Dawns, she is a lighter painter and did not apply that much paint to the brush.

So here they are completely painted with the 2 colors green and blue, the paint is more like a paste and is gritty. After it is dry I rubbed my fingers lightly over it to get rid of the loose grit.

The you want to DRY BRUSH more copper paint to just highlight the areas.  Very lightly and you may need to go over it a few times.  last I applied Turquoise Satin and a bit of Old Silver Waxes over the copper to highlight it more. You just lightly rub it in and done!

Here are Dawns Brushes finished.

I hope you liked them, very easy to do and Finnabair is a great teacher!
