DIY Aged Vessels - Textured Paint - Faux Rust & Antiquing Effects In this video, I add a textured paint and faux rust antiquing effect to a glass balloon vase (pink), that I got from Spotlight in the reduced-to-clear bin with wonderful results So easy and I am thrilled with how it looks, I am looking forward to doing another faux rust vessel.

How i did it

Added a layer of baking soda paint to cover vessel

Added another thinker mix more blobby layer

Sprinkles with baking soda and sprayed with vinegar
