This is a new clock that I refinished and painted with the "rust" products. I love working with "rust", but I can never know for sure how it's going to turn out. So, I just keep working it until I'm happy with the look. You can paint "rust" all over a piece or you can just apply it in certain small or large areas. I do love the way this piece turned out, though.
And, this is a new clock that I painted, crackled and distressed. I found this iron bird and screwed it to the top of the clock. I really like the way this turned out, too. I usually do keep working on a piece until it turns out the way I want it to. Sometimes, I have to re-do a couple of times until it's right. I don't mind re-doing because adding more and more paint just makes it look layered and older. Oh, and I added that little fleur de lis at the bottom to cover a hole.
The rust clock and my distressed iron bird clock have both been sold, but I just wanted to share the finishes with you.
