Plans for the Patina Blog Hop in Full Gear

What will 10 Vintaj Compasses look like when patina is applied  by 10 different folks?
I gave away a 26mm (.6mm thick), Arte Metal, Compass Decorivet with two posterior prongs to some adventurous folks who have little or no experience with patina.   They are challenged to put patina on this compass and to use it in a creation.  This compass can be used to decorate any material by simply pushing the rivet ends into the material and folding over. Also, you can use needle nose pliers to turn the rivet points into loops for use in jewelry designs.   All of the folks participating in this challenge and blog hop are members of Artisan Whimsy.  I think it will be interesting to see what everyone comes up with using the same piece.

  1. Sounds like fun. I can't wait to see what everyone does with the compass.

  2. Looks like you have a great gang of designers unafraid of a challenge, Kathy!

  3. I am really looking forward to this challenge. I plan on heading over to JoAnne's this weekend to pick up some patina.
