I find it hard to finish a class in the time allowed so brought this one home to finish. It was another great class with Gabrielle at Crafty Thoughts and we learnt techniques for rusting. There were a couple of things you could do and I went for this large peg.
I used Plumbers metal tape all over the peg then embossed it with a pencil and a couple of metal embossing tools. To rust it I used alcohol inks, rust and gold and then rub over some black acrylic paint. I got very messy, yuk!
The ART letters were rusted with distress embossing powders and edged with black soot distress ink. I am very pleased with the result.
