Antique Brass Patina Finish with One Product and 3 Easy Steps

Antique Brass Patina Finish with DecoArt Metallic Lustre 

Hello Friends

Today I am sharing a Junk Journal cover page made using only the DecoArt Metallic Lustre for coloring and patina effect. 

Antique Brass Patina Finish with DecoArt Metallic Lustre 

Step 1: Creating Texture : I created this on thick textured card stock, created texture using DecoArt White Modeling Paste and a stencil.

Step 2 : Base coat : Although the Metallic lustre is meant to use as a  top coat wax I decided to use it for coloring too. I painted the page with Metallic lustre in Elegant Emerald and Brilliant Turquoise after diluting a bit with water ....

Step 3 : Highlight Texture : Highlighted the textures with Gold Rush and Silver Spark Metallic Lustre by dry brushing with a stiff brush. The handmade clay angel is colored with a diluted Brilliant Turquoise and highlighted with dry Gold Rush . The metallic embellishments are also dry brushed with Gold Rush and Iced Expresso. Buff the texture with a soft cloth to increase the sheen.

More about Metallic Lustre by DecoArt
Metallic Lustre is a water-based metallic wax that buffs to a brilliant shine. It features highly concentrated pigments and boasts an opaque coverage with only one coat. Metallic Lustre adheres to most absorbent surfaces, as well as metal. Because it's a paste, it allows for more control during application than liquid paint.
