Miniature Faux Painted-Tarnished Metal Bowls

6 miniature faux-finish "tarnished metal" bowls

I made many of these in different shapes/sizes.

This is the set available in my Etsy shop; https://www.etsy.com/shop/kylelefort

I made this set to look like an awesome garage sale find. Beat up

[faux]metal bowls, cracks and imperfections included, shined up as

vintage styled home decor...in miniature.

Real materials/process;

They are made of up-cycled paper, that has been rolled into tight coils, and

then formed into various shapes, held together with plenty of glue.

After drying, they are painted with gesso, sanded, and then carefully

painted with metallic/other acrylic paint, in a style that creates a

faux- tarnished metal effect.They have been sealed with clear polycrylic

for stability and additional shine.

They resemble pottery, but if you accidentally drop one, no worries, paper doesn't crack or shatter.
