Place the  textured  pieces  onto  a  work  surface.   A  folded  paper  towel  works  great  for  this.   Stipple  the  surface  of  each  piece  with  both,  gold   and  copper  leaAing  pens.  Add  a  drop  or  two  of   ginger  alcohol  ink,  and  blend  the  colors   together  using  a  paintbrush. Note: the leafing pens and Adirondack inks are both alcohol based, allowing the two mediums to work beautifully together. You may want to try other color combinations of metallic pens and inks for even more amazing results.

Apply the  rust  antiquing  solution  right  away,   before  the  metallic  paint  dries  completely.  I   like  to  apply  a  liberal  coat…  and  scrub  it  into   the  crevices  with  my  paintbrush.   You  can  also  apply  several  light  coats,  until  you   are  happy  with  the  patina  results.  Allow  the   antiquing  solution  to  dry  completely. Note: The metallic leafing pens contain enough metal that they react really well with most patina solutions. The silver works nicely with liver of sulfur.

There are  so  many  design  possibilities.  Don’t   just  stop  with  a  Necklace.  Try  creating  a   bracelet  or  two  as  well.
