My first attempt at Antiquing Glaze....

So I had this ugly "thing" that I got at goodwill not even sure exactly what it was supposed to be, all I knew is it had potential.




I first started with priming it and then painted it with white gloss spray paint.  But it still didn't do it for me.

So when I read on


about her Glazing 101, I thought how fun (I should try this).
Ok so this stuff is really cool....Valspar Antiquing Glaze - Asphaltum 98278. It was about $9.00 for the bottle at Lowe's, but as I've read on The Speckled Dog Tutorial, a little goes a LONG way. I didn't even put a dent into my bottle, just used what was inside the cap...


 
After I was done - 3 coats of Glaze.  I was still missing something...but didn't know what.
So then I remembered the two little bunnies I got for $1.00 at Goodwill.  So I antiqued them too....He's got one coat, waiting for the 2nd.
Here is the final with it all put together...


 
 

I know you just love my twine eggs and moss eggs, stay tuned for how I made those....so much fun!
 


There you go...so happy!  Happy Day...Heather
