Faux Metal Week - "Patina Pulse Tag" by Hannah

Hi all, Hannah here with my first post of 2018! 

There are a range of paint techniques and styles that can give an effective look of metal in a few simple steps. I have detailed a couple in a tag design below!

The tag features two metal work techniques and is created using DecoArt paints.

The greyboard tag has been embossed using a metal effect embossing folder. Painted silver, washes have been layered up to give an aged look to the base. The washes pool in the embossed areas to give added interest.

The industrial wings have been painted in a copper base and aged with a patina lightened with chalk paint and greens to give depth to the effect.

The sentiment for the tag has been framed with an industrial element, painted in the same technique.
