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.

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.
