This 4x4 really came together for me. The other day, I bought Iron Metallic Surfacer by Sophisticated Finishes along with some patina finishes. WOW. This stuff ROCKS! The IRON is a gritty, deep charcoal black, and when I went over it with the Copper patina, it gave it a rusty finish! And it was pretty quick. Four of the pieces above are Grungeboard, the B was done on canvas then cut out. I used Distress Powder Black Soot on it. All the white is done with the Ranger Inkssential white pen. The background on the 4x4 was done on white 110# cardstock, where I laid a piece of screen patterned mulberry paper on top of and brushed the Iron paint over it, then removed the mulberry. When dry, I went over it with Antique linen & Weathered wood Distress ink.
