Faux Patina

Over at Club Scrap Anne Marie challenged us on creating a faux patina look for our projects, layouts and cards using acrylic paints and texture paste.  I'm going to show a different way to create a patina look using texture paste and Color Bursts. 

I started by trying different texture paste mediums with different applications. I found that I really liked the thicker paste.  First I mixed the copper Color Burst with the texture paste in a small amount on my craft sheet. I slathered the thicker paste on one card and used a stencil for the second. Let it dry. 

I then puffed the turquoise Color Burst directly on top of the panels and added water. 

I just rubbed my fingers of the thicker texture paste after the Color Bursts dried to bring more of the cooper out.

This card was created for the Retro Sketch #215 challenge and the Club Scrap Technique Challenge. Give it a try, add your link at the bottom of the Technique blog post to win a gift certificate.
