Technique | SILVERING :: The technique used on these bottles involved liquid silver leaf, rust (that can be scraped off a rusty object...or you can make a rusty object by spritzing a metal object w/ salty water, letting it dry & repeating), dirt & water. So cool! | #villabarnes
I gave it a generous layer of dark grey. No priming necessary, the finish was very dry.- Next, I slathered on a coat of white gesso.- Then I wiped back the excess until I was happy with the finish. My favorite thing to wipe back with is an old t-shirt, or something similar.
