DIY Patina: spray with saltwater mixture, leave outside for a month, soak overnight in chlorine, cover with salt in an airtight container, torch or heat in oven, dip in vinegar and sprinkle with salt or cover with ammonia soaked towels to achieve patina.
Nature Clay Magnets: Pick a flower or plant and lay on top of a small piece of clay and use a rolling pin to make an imprint in the clay. let it harden. Paint. Add a magnet to the back. Make 4 or 5 and this would make a lovely small gift. Nice!
