Brass Transformation Reveal

3.23.2015

On Friday I showed y'all a little project I worked on recently and I left you hanging without showing you how it turned out. Well, here it is in all its many layers it took to create this look.




I love how each layer created this worn look.

Pale gray, gold, two blues, and waxes layered on each other.





I love how each layer filled the crevices and worn places in different ways.

 You can see where the wire went through here.

All the details show up with this finish.





In case you missed Friday's post showing the before and the products I used you can check it
out here.

Have a great week!

    1. Teresa, I removed it. I am trying to clean up my blog a bit and see if I can get it to run smoother. I am subscribed to blogs and use bloglovin plus know in my head my faves.

  9. I enjoy you blog but wish I didn't have to remove so many ads that hide the lower portion of your pictures. That is annoying. ---Barb

    1. I'm sorry for the annoyance of the ads, Barb. At first they came up on every photo and now only two so I do think about y'all. If I didn't have ads and an income from this blog there would be no blog. The publishers pay more for the in image ads.Just a simple click and they should disappear. I have to do the same thing on most of my favorite blogs.
