Incredible New Product!

Good morning! I hope you grabbed a cup of coffee.....because today's post is a bit lengthy! A blogger friend of mine turned me on to this new product from Ten Seconds Studio.  It is just the coolest paint ever!  It gives the most gorgeous Patina'd look to your projects and it is super easy to do.  Let me show you what I've made first. I had this drawer shadow box I had picked up awhile ago and decided to alter it for my bedroom.  (My colors being purple and green. ; ) I chose the pictures from Cortney's photo shoot a couple of weeks ago.  I wanted to use this paint but wasn't sure how it would work with different items, so I just played a bit.  I "Patina'd" the two clay pots.....a resin piece from Melissa Frances, and a metal corner piece.  They all turned out beautiful!   
I added Spanish Moss and some flowers cut using my Cricut and the Flower Shoppe cartridge. And of course this sweet photo of Cort with her BFF, Patty. 
I found these dangling charms and thought they'd be perfect to tie around my clay pot.
So here is the paint in all of its zippered glory!  Sorry for the poor photo....that's what happens when you take pictures at midnight! ; )  I bought the "starter" kit that comes with 4 different colors and the Patina solution.  I purchased the spray bottle separately. 
Here are what the pieces looked like before I painted them.  Want to see what each color of paint looks like? 
The first color and my most absolute favorite color is the brown.  This is the one I used for my clay pots above. I think it is the most gorgeous color!!

The next color is black.  When sprayed it actually gives the appearance of rust.  So super cool I can hardly stand it!!!! 
The next two are so very similar....but the first one uses this copper paint.  Love the hues of green......
...and the next one uses the gold paint.  See? pretty similar to the copper, but still so pretty!
Here are all of my finished pieces.  I will be using them soon on my future projects!!!
Whew! Still with me? I hope you enjoyed my lil' "informational" post! 
Thank you for stopping by!!! 
Have a great weekend my friends!!!
