For this dresser I wanted to paint the hardware a turquoise color. But in the end, by mistake, I created a faux oxidized look.
If you don't know what I'm talking about her are a couple of real objects that have the real oxidation thing going on.
First, I painted my hard ware with oil rubbed bronze, and let them dry.
Then I barely dipped my brush into my paint, Woodlawn Valley Haze by Valspar, and mixed it with some water on a plate.
I lightly brushed it onto the hardware. It fell into all the little crevices and I realized it looked like old iron that had slowly oxidized over time.
