Here is a quick way to give inexpensive packaged
jingle bells a great rusty patina!
I've used it before on Ikea pails.
I loved the way it gave each pail a different patina.
Today I'm experimenting with jingle bells...
This time I'm using the "rust" antiquing
solution to rust inexpensive dollar store bells.
I put the bells and the rust solution into a jar.
I mixed the jar often to keep the bells saturated.
After about 10 minutes I laid the bells on a
paper towel to dry overnight.
In the morning my bells had a great rusty patina...
Some of the bells even had a green patina.
Now they are perfect for my rustic Christmas projects!
This is not a paid endorsement... I just love the product!
