Patination, Verdigris and...

....Rust.

Further to The Sum Of All Crafts Steampunk images, 
here is her tutorial for a rust finish for paper. 
If you want something to look old and brassy and vintage. 
this is a good place to start.
 Here is one of her canvases with rusty paper.



 If you go Valerie's main page and scroll down to Steampunk images,
 you can see all kinds of Steamy goodness and 
resourceful and imaginative creations. 
Very inspiring and useful, if you're trying to cut down
on the amount of sugar in your Valentine cards..

  1. Wow! This is gorgeous. I love the look of rust against the print and blues. Have a happy Sunday.

    1. Isn't it lovely? Such a simple technique, too. I like art that happens when I'm away doing something else (like blogging!)
