How To Paint Your Home Decor Perfectly Pretty With Patina

Sharing is Caring! ❤️

Do you have home decor elements that are drably lacking a personality and punch? Well, there’s an easy way to change all that! With Modern Masters Metal Effects Kit, you can easily transform any home decor element into a thing of lasting beauty.

Let me show you how I was able to turn my drab home decor elements into the perfectly pretty pieces I adore! 

It all starts with their kit. 

Metal Effects Kits: These oxidizing finish kits transform any paintable surface in minutes. Choose a green patina, blue patina, or rust finish. Each kit includes full instructions and covers up to 2 sq. ft. Just right for small projects.

You can transform any paintable surface into a beautiful patina finish in minutes. This kit includes primer, oxidizing copper paint and a green patina aging solution with a spritzer cap.

I still have over half of these paints, and I completed three small projects already!

I have a pair (or had) of black plain candle holders – I really loved the shape and size of them and knew I could turn them into beautiful pieces that have personality and pops of color! This kit is super easy to use too and another reason I love it!

As you can see below, these candleholders were, well, just plain boring.

The process is super easy too! Everything you need is in one kit.

I have my three pieces all prepped and ready to dry. I decided to paint a vase as well. The candlestick holders are made of wood and the vase is glass. You can patina any paintable surface!

Now, I have created beautiful home decor elements that have personality and pops of color too!

I didn’t spray the activator with a heavy hand because, personally, I love the bronze patina finish too and wanted to be sure there was enough of it showing. They recommend against spraying with a heavy hand.

I love how the colors in my table pick up and accentuate the tones in the patina finish!

Using this kit has made such a huge difference in my home decor elements. If I had to buy patina candle holders it would have cost me a fortune! I saved money doing it myself.

I also decided to paint a vase as I mentioned above. Look at how stunning this turned out. Here’s a close up of how it looked before.
