Patina Altered Paint Brush

Patina Paint Brush

This mixed media altered art piece started with a thrift store paint brush.  I was very inspired by a tutorial I saw on Finnabair’s blog (  Three dimensional gears, bolts, and metal art pieces were attached to the brush after it was primed with clear gesso. Then I followed the tutorial using Finnabair’s Art Extravagance Patina Paste Set to paint it with the blues and bronze colours. The two blue pastes provide a gritty aged texture while the bronze paint offers up a glorious metallic shimmer.

Materials Used:

  • Thrift Store Paint Brush
  • Prima Patina Paste Set
  • Prima Metal Gears and Bolts
  • Prima Resin Heart
  • Assorted Metal Gears
  • Assorted Embellishments & Buttons
  • Chipboard Die Cut Gears Tim Holtz
