A Mermaids journey, Isn't it just amazing what we can achieve by apply paint to something that's outdated and turning it into a beautiful jaw dropping piece?? I never tire of this process! Watch and learn how to take a bright brassy chandelier to an amazing mysterious statement.
I started out with just a basic high gloss brass chandelier that was ever so popular in the 90's....eghh the 90's ...am I right?? I made sure I cleaned and in particular used a degreaser on it.
I decided it needed to have some type of special embellishments to make it really unique so next enters those fabulous mould offered by Iron Orchid Designs!

Lucky me! I found this sweet whimsical Mermaid shape that fit just perfectly on each side of the cylinder of the chandelier!
...take a look at the entire "how to" video below to learn how to properly achieve all the creative steps for the oxidized patina finish!
Lastly I finished it off with clear wax from the DIY line and added just a hint of dark wax around the mermaid detailing to help enhance it even more!
