3 Ways To Add Patina to Efex

Reinventing old furniture is often all about the patina.

Over the last year we have found many ways to add elegant old world charm to pieces dressed-up with Efex.

Dark wax over paint was used on this Christmas ornament. Yes, that time of year is coming up!


You can add crud (sawdust by another name) and then layers of paint.

So go on, experiment with different colors and finishes!
