View a YouTube, have fun using VerDay reactive metal paints to create beautiful “industrial chic” art, home decor, jewelry, and accessories.
Nothing beats Mother Nature
for creating beauty. I have always admired the variety of textures, rusts and patinas
collected on various metals after years and years of exposure to the natural elements. My friend, Cindy Shepard
, actually cultivates these deposits by keeping an outdoor junk bucket
. She fills the bucket with all types of metals including cans, nails and utensils, even old skates – and checks it every now and then for ‘progress’. A great idea, however it does take a long time for the metals to react….. I don’t have that long!
The solution is VerDay
reactive metal paints from Ten Seconds Studio.
In the book Rust & Patina Style
I use this fabulous reactive metal paint on everything!!
I added genuine rust and verdigris patina to wood, paper mache, gourds, fabric, paper – even tennis shoes and journals. It works like a charm on all of these surfaces.
Gourds are a favorite canvas for me, I love the way the paint works on these fun shapes. I just added a few nifty little sun faces molded from Apoxie Clay, (another great surface for VerDay paint). Play with texture, stencils and drips to create some beautiful effects.
A handy little VerDay 5 piece set
comes with everything you need to create rust & patina for art, accessories, jewelry and clothing. A perfect gift for an artist – or give one to the gardener in the family to add wonderful textures and colors to the garden.
