I seem to really love making everything all rusty and old, lol
I have another item that I made look rusty and worn, using the same techniques that I did earlier.
Here are the other posts about the rust technique:
For this project I used a lantern that I got at the dollar store (these are super cute just like this, but I just had to add my own touch to the lantern)
Then you just start dabbing on your paints with a make up sponge. I used the Finnabair Rust Pastes and I do like them! They add the right colors and texture to make it look like something rusted naturally.
Dab all around until you are happy with the the end look.
Also, I made a video of the process of making a rusty lantern if you want to check that out.
