Aged in an Hour
Materials: Ordning Utensil Caddy, Modern Masters “Metal Effects” paint and patina
Description: My old stereo speakers were a lil’ too silver for me, so I decided to “age” them a bit for that “Vintage Industrial” look.
Since I had the paints out (Modern Masters “Metal Effects” reactive paint and patina solution) I decided to make a candle holder out of my old ORDNING Utensil Caddy.

I waited the few minutes the instructions said and than sprayed on the rust activator, than the blue patina activator.
I then sprayed on a matte finish sealer.
Add candle and . . . (O:
