You know what one of the funnest parts of my job is? Playing with new products before they hit the market. The opportunity to be a brand ambassador for Heirloom Traditions Paint & Certified Retail Trainer for Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint means I get a lot of fun stuff in the mail to play with!
Oxidized Patina Furniture Wax is made to mimic the look of the bluish hue nature creates on crusty, worn, and weathered copper.
I counln’t wait to play with it. I couldn’t make up my mind what color I wanted to use first, so using sample boards, I played around with a few different looks.
I then painted my second board in Mocha and finished it in Oxidized Patina.
To create an even more copper effect I painted another board in Mocha, sealed it in Copper Penny top coat, and then used the Oxidized Patina over that. I don’t have any pictures but I made a quick video to show you how it turned out.
In the words of Rachael Ray “YUMMO!!!” I think the Copper Penny + Oxidized Patina combo was my fave.
Lastly, I used Thunderous with the wax.
People LOVE Turquoise but are sometimes afraid of an entire piece of furniture painted in it.
This might be a way to dip your home’s toe in the turquoise painted pond.
It’s subtle but still makes a statement.
So I have to know. Which color combo did you like the best? Mocha, Black Bean, or Thunderous? Leave a comment and let me know!
PS: I do not have Oxidized Patina in my retail partner stores in Oklahoma yet (I am placing an order today!) but you can order via my online shopping cart here or find your local Heirloom Tradition’s Paint retailer here.
And if you paint something in it, PUHLEASE for the love, send me a picture.
