Here is what the shabby gray base (and body)
of the fan looked like when I got it from the local on-line auction.
This is what it looked like afterwards.
And it would have probably looked even better
if I had actually cleaned the fan first.
It gives items a nice vintage look, but not flat.
It somehow creates the hammered pattern and I love it.
I used it on this funky mid-century pottery vase.
I think I will rub a little stain on it to create some depth.
I also have recently used it on a wooden curtain rod and
metal curtain holders. Love.
