Patina Effect Rectangular Tin

Hi All,
I wanted to share this Rectangular Biscuit Tin that I have given a makeover using inspiration & products from Finnabair, Tim Holtz & Prima Marketing.

I love the intricate details of the Iron Orchid Designs 'Keyholes' moulds.
I filled them with melted hot glue rather than paper clay.  
I found this process much quicker & easier to do.
The glue cools & sets very quickly.  It is easy to remove from the moulds & is flexible.
A few air bubbles form in the pour but they can be reduced, & the back flattened 
by warming with a heat gun.

I applied texture paste through the Tim Holtz intricate stencil shown below.
The keyholes, art stones & die cuts were attached with 3D matte medium.
The whole piece was then brushed with white gesso.

Once this was all dry I used a stiff brush to apply layers of the 3 colours of Patina Effect Paste 
over the surface.

I absolutely adore the way this turned out.

It is hard to photograph as it combines the shine of the Copper Effect Paste with 
the Matte effect of the Blue & Green Pastes.

The copper looks pink in the photos, but more metallic in real life.

Took photos from all angles! 
To finish the Base I covered the bottom of the tin 
with various Tim Holtz new Washi/Tissue Tapes 
before swiping with some of the colours used above.

It has now become much prettier storage for my stash of 'Bling' 

I recommend trying this.  It really is very easy & so effective..
