I can't tell you how much I love this whole scene. I'm thinking of a Guest Cottage by a beach somewhere... are you?
Just to show you what I started with.... The back basket has been crackled but not 'aged' yet.. Where as the basket in the front has had a layer of brown added to it...
Then I went back over with 'paint' to add the rust spots. I used copper paint on the round basket, but thought it was too shinny... So then I used a dark orange and it was to bright ... finally I found a color that looked just like rust- red oxide? I think... and it worked perfectly. So if you look REAL close each basket is just a little different..
And from a distance, they look Great:)
Now I just need to build something for them to go in:)
Until Next Time:)
