VerDay your World! Join me for HMM's this week!


Hello Everyone!

I'm having so much fun experimenting and exploring the unique applications of VerDay Paints...I have to say it has only taken a few seconds for me to realize that I am a HuGe FaN of these NEW Paints! The Patinas are unlike any other products I have ever tried before...The results with VerDay look so authentic. I was amazed by the transformation!

If you are interested in learning more about the VerDay Paints from Ten Seconds Studio...then you will want to join me this week for Hot Metal Mama's! I will be giving you the 411 on these fabulous paints and share valuable tips on how to create gorgeous patinas on all kinds of surfaces from pure copper, to art metal, to wood, to chipboard, to plastic, to fabric,...the list could go on and on and on...



Each person in the HMM Workshop will complete a tag sampler set and a "bonus" project. This will be a great reference tool for you to use as you transform your future projects with these amazing VerDay products!

Here is a TSS project that has received a VerDay transformation! 
Such pretty patinas...
