Altering a Tin with Verday Paints...By Carol Fox

This was in it's previous life a M & S mint tin. I Painted it with the Verday Copper Patina paints and solution to give it the lovely patina finish.
I then gave it a coat of Multi medium to seal it before stamping onto it.
I used the Artistic Outpost stamps Paris Exposition and  French Flight, stamping the images directly onto the lid of the tin using Black Stazon ink and masking as necessary.

The current challenge is open until the end  of the month, for the full details and how to upload your link see the post HERE.

  3. Absolutely delicious... the stamping and images couldn't be more perfect for the style of the tin, and I'm more and more sure I NEED the Verday paints!
