Hi friends.  Today I'm sharing these Painted Patina Earrings with you. They are the perfect way to add a pop of color to your wardrobe, not to mention you can make a pair in all your favorite colors.  I was lucky enough to come across these antique brass earrings at my local 99 Cent Only store. I have amazing luck there finding jewelry I can customize to my liking. And for only a buck!

Items needed:

  • Americana Acrylics 2oz - Coral Blush
  • Americana Acrylics 2oz - Sea Breeze
  • Americana Acrylics 2oz - Bright Yellow
  • Americana Multi-Purpose Sealer 2oz - Multi-Purpose Sealer
  • Metal Earrings
  • Paint Brush
  • Paper Towel or Soft Cloth

I'm telling you right now this is the easiest project, you will have these earrings done in 5 minutes. All you do is paint the surface with your dry bristled paint brush in the color of your choice. Then before it's dry wipe off excess paint with your paper towel or soft cloth. You want the paint to stay in the crevices, if you wipe too much off or want more paint just add more and repeat the wiping off step. Once the paint is dry simply add a thin layer of the multi-purpose sealer to the painted area and let dry. Now your done!

Then you will have some really great earrings that you customized to match your personality and wardrobe at a total bargain.  Your friends will want some, so be prepared to buy a few extra pairs to make for gifts.
