In CC102 on Day one, Tim showed us a technique he calls Eroded Metallic. I loved that look, but do not have all the required "stuff" to accomplish it. So... .since I took CC101 where Tim taught the CHEMISTRY of Distress, I thought... make it up!!! I mixed Ripe Persimmon and Gathered Twigs DP together with some Antiqued Bronze Distress Stain. Got the color I wanted, but not the complete metallic look. Granted it is more of a rusted/eroded metal look, not metallic.  But, I do like the effect this gave...

Taking Tim Holtz's Creative Chemistry 102 class and I must say, Day 1 was PACKED with info. I just got the first technique completed, with 5 more techniques to go...WOW!!! Busy day in class today!!!!

What I love about Distress Paints is their vibrant colors, while still retaining that marvelous Distress look. Plus they feel like suede when dry!  I used various combinations of Dusty Concord, Gathered Twigs, Scattered Straw, Ripe Persimmon, Crushed Olive and Pumice Stone on these tags.
