Copper and Verdigris Love plus A Modern Masters Giveaway!

Honest to goodness. I must be stopped. I’ve become completely obsessed! My friends are starting to pick things up for me because THEY see the patina potential! Take this guy for instance…

Yea, he’s okay. But I feel like he’s totally lost touch with his greek, manly side. Like, he’s been surrounded by a bad fake floral swag for many years. Notice the furroughed brow…

I saw it as my duty to dress him right! So as I’ve done a lot recently, I reached for the bottle…Modern Masters Metal Effects, of course! Excuse the bottles, I am a serious lover! After a coat of Metal Effects Primer I used the Copper Paint.

Better already, right? I wanted to give him a nice Verdigris finish though so I applied more copper paint to the areas that would hold water, like deep in those lovely locks! I also lightly applied Copper to the shoulders and bust. While it was all still wet, I sprayed the Green Aging Solution, starting at the top.

I used a sponge to blend and reveal some of the copper on the high points.

And within a matter of minutes, my greek guy had slid into a nice coat of Verdigris, and feeling mighty confident!
