How to Create a Rusty Patina Chest

This grungy green and rusty chest was so much fun to create!

This Basset mule chest was rather unremarkable, but I picked it up for $15, solid wood, and in relatively good condition. I kept this in my inventory for some time, with no takers, so it became mine to play with.

How To:

First, I cleaned with White Lightning. This is such an important step for painting projects!

With all of our prep work done, the body got a base coat of Spanish Moss.

I then used natural bristle brushes to blend in Dried Sage, Collard Greens, Sand Bar, and Midnight Sky.

I applied the Patina Paint in Iron and Bronze at random. The Blue and Green sprays with the second coat of patina caused dropping and started the corrosion process.

Have you tried VooDoo Gel Stain to accent those little details?
It's an easy way to really make those special features stand out!
