Rust-Oleum Antique Copper kits
We used three different Rust-Oleum paint technique kits to give decor accessories a completely new look. In this project we use Rust-Oleum Antique Copper Kit on a cheap decorative mirror frame.

The kit comes complete with everything you need for the project other than a dropcloth, a damp cloth and something to paint!
I bought this pretty mirror many years ago at Mr Price Home.
1. Start by cleaning the project to be painted. You don't want any dirt or flaky paint to spoil the finished result.
2. Place the project on a dropcloth and be sure to protect the surrounding areas from over-spray.
3. Shake the can well for at least a minute to ensure that the contents of the tin are mixed.
4. Spray on the base coat, working from left to right in even strokes and spraying from a distance of 30cm away from the surface to be painted.
5. Let this coat dry for about an hour. On a detailed piece you may need to apply more than one coat to ensure that you cover the entire frame.
6. Shake the top coat. Some of these tins have been sitting on the shelf for quite a while so be sure that it is well mixed before you apply.
7. Use the supplied sponge applicator to stroke on the top coat.
Work on small areas, as the top coat dries very quickly.
Take the damp cloth and dab or stroke the area you have just top coated until you are happy with the effect.
You can apply more top coat if you want to create a darker effect.
