Vintage Altered Tin

Hello, Charlotte here and I am sharing how to make this vintage keepsake altered tin. This tin is a keepsake tin devoted to storing family memories, which I plan to store old vintage family photographs.  I aged the tin using Piccolo Vintage Copper Enamel Powder, Piccolo Victorian Bronze Metallic Powder and ink.  The finished box is sealed with Glastique Gloss for protection.  I love using the Piccolo Vintage Cooper Enamel Powder because of the beautiful patina finish.  These enamel powders are perfect for mix media artist and are by far are the best embossing powders I have used for mixed media.  I hope you enjoy this tin....
