Vintage Effect Wash™

  • Patina (DCW10)

Other supplies

  • paper towels
  • scissors
  • craft paintbrushes
  • wooden dowel rod (optional)
  • jute
  • wooden beads (pre-drilled; number of choice)
  • plastic lid (large, i.e., ice cream bucket)


  1. Paint the beads with Patina. Wipe back excess paint with a paper towel for a stained look.
  2. Use a wooden dowel, if needed, to assist in painting the entire area of the bead. Let dry.
  3. Thread the beads with jute.
  4. Make jute tassels and tie to the ends.


While the beads are drying, it's helpful to have something to gather them in to keep them from rolling away. I used the lid of a plastic ice cream bucket.

If you are having trouble threading the beads on the string, grab a piece of Scotch tape and wrap the ends of the string to create a stiff end.
