Rust Anything!

Want to rust something, anything?





I took several mismatched urns I had, some ceramic, some plastic and coated them with iron paint, it creates a textured surface and is made with real ground metals.

I usually apply 2 coats and let dry according to the instructions.

The rust antiquing liquid is a mild acid that triggers the oxidation of the iron, so it’s real rust.

You can find sophisticated finishes at Michaels Craft Store and online. Great stuff!




When I applied the rusting liquid, I chose to leave some of the base gray metal paint showing,

and I also applied the rusting liquid heavier in certain areas, it gave a depth to the rust.



I faked my Mom out, I told her I bought the rusted metal urns at an Estate Sale, she actually thought they were real vintage urns .


  1. Those urns are awesome, and I think I am going to have to try it. Thanks so much for sharing!
