    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.

      Correction ! It's Marbled. Or Marbling. And I am Male.
      And I'm very grateful for those who love rustic.
      And So..,It's not to compare. But to identify !!
      Thanx for sharing :..: ! And God bless (you) ! Wherever (you) ! Are.

      Very nice, is this two colors of paint with one blotted on over the base coat - or is it more complicated than that?

      I looked at the photo and immediately wrote the comment - sorry I should have read first, asked second.

      Why would u want to visit hear ? The only thing I like about SF is the weather !
      Been here for 10yrs. [12/16/05] a red! anthill at the foot of bridges. Views are nice. But the honeymoons been over. ! It's sooo.... visibly corrupt !
      The Capitol of spiritual smugness & Fatherless Bastards by choice !!! Love the weather though !! It's the only thing that's Fair here .. •!.•,

      Inky, you're very kind, thank you for your comment and love :-)

      Jscott, thank you, I love trompe l'oeil patina :-)

      PatSea many thanks for your compliment, but sometimes my "blessed hands" break a piece and become damned hell hands ;-)

      Lambda, this kind of comment is not welcome... You wouldn't agree if I was aggressive toward your country!
      And, correction, I'm not in South of France...
