"My-easy-to-make-style", part 2: tarnished copper . Łatwe-do-zrobienia, cz.2 - zaśniedziała miedź

Still having problems with commenting and my laptop, that's why I am posting this much later than "very soon".;D



I tried different shapes and, mostly: new colour.



This time it is supposed to be tarnished copper. Mixed green, blue and white acrylic paints and after painting added a bit of copper colour here and there too.



I really love the pattern on this big square table.:)



Big, big, big thanks go to:
Flor - yellow roses
Sans - basket, other flowers



Hope you like these garden furniture too!


Wciąż mam problemy z komentowaniem i moim laptopem, dlatego tego posta publikuję z małym opóźnieniem.:) Tym razem wypróbowywałam inne kształty i kolor: zasniedziałą miedź. Najbardziej podoba mi się wzór na tym dużym kwadratowym stole.;) Mam nadzieję, że meble Wam się spodobają.

Lovely colour. I'd love to make furniture legs like these. I think I'll try making them from cane. After soaking the cane for a while, it bends easily. The square table and stools are gorgeous.
Hugs, Drora

The Old Maid said...

Oh, cane, Drora? Need to try it one day.:) Mine are made of the jewlery parts: tubes of necklaces and ... toothpicks!
Happy you like my furniture! Thank you!!

I agree with Victoria - this verdigris finish looks great, very noble (other word for saying very expensive - LOL)Your garden furniture is so clever made from this jewelry stuff, thanks for sharing the idea - and btw, I can't live without toothpicks, they're one of my favourite crafting helpers, especially for painting and glueing - and sometimes for miniatures... ;O)

Greetings
Birgit

Hey Cousin, looks like the garden furniture we've seen in mansions here (when we went to Estate Sales). Kathy wanted to share some tips you might to try for future projects. 1. There is a pre-mixed paint you can buy to give the antique bronze finish. The brand is "Sophisticated Finishes" by Modern Options. 2. On metal, there is an acid based liquid that creates the patina of weathered metal. You could find it at a Stained Glass supply store. Kathy has a bottle from GROBIT USA in New Jersey USA. 3. To weather unpainted wood, Kathy uses WEATHER-IT by A-West in Georgia USA. Hope this is useful for you and the others. Uściski i pocałunki TKO

The Old Maid said...

Thank you soooooooooooooooo much for the tips dear Cousins!!!!
I will try to find these over here but I think it won't be easy.:)
Thank you once again!
Uściski i buziaki dla TKO!!!
