Hello everyone and welcome to the BoBunny Blog today!
Today propose you a Technique Tuesday project. I had the idea to recycle some common aluminium trays and decorate them with te antique of embossed work to create beautiful shabby chic heart shapped charms.
I got inspired by BoBunny Petal Lane collection that I used to make a little tag.
First, I created the heart shape of the charms, then I embossed the metal and assembled the heart using a cardboard lining to keep it rounded.
After that, it was the time for painting. I used the beautiful Pentart Acrylic Color, the black underneath and, when dry, two coats of the white.
When all was perfectly dry I distressed the surface using a kitchen sponge/scourer. To give an ancient and precious look, I coated the hearts whit Silver Antique Paste by Pentart. I think it looks like aged pewter and i love the look!
What do you think? Would you think it was a simple aluminium tray?
With just a bit of creativity and also the wide range of Pentart products, you can make unexpected projects!
See you soon and sending a kiss!
From your friend,
