Lambda's post with his marbled pipe/pillar make me share with you my patinated polystyren resin coated "antique" column...
Last pic is not the original one, just to show as white mine was!
Patina was done with a mix of ocre colorant and diluted acrylic paint.
Then a mix of ashes and very thin sassed gravel (from my court yard!) with acrylic wood/paper glue, applied roughly with a round brush.
Then two layers of matte varnish, acrylic too.
All process took 3hours, in my kitchen :-)
When hubby came back, I told him "look at what I discovered while digging in the garden!"
He believed me until he touched it, lol!
Almost three years later, exposed to rain, frost and sun, it is still as I made it.
