Cheater Patina
by Kristal Wick
It's 2 a.m. and you just completed a beautiful piece of metal jewelry! Finally finished this masterpiece and needs a little sumpin'-sumpin' but you're not sure what. PATINA!
Instructions
That's it! The piece needs some depth definition and patina is the perfect way to do it. You run to your cabinet and shake the empty container of patina. Nooooooooooo! It never fails! You can't sleep until this piece is complete, what to do?

Here's the perfect cheater patina technique! A Sharpie pen and Pro foam polishing pads.

1. Cover the metal with the Sharpie ink and wait for it to dry.
2. Remove the ink by vigorously polishing the metal with the pad leaving the dark ink in all the nooks and crannies.
*Optional step-you can seal the metal with a sealant to prevent the ink from fading over time.

Ready to wear in minutes!
