Metallic Copper Paint
I purchased a roll of pennies at Walgreens and soaked them in vinegar for a few hours. That produced the shine!!! They were FILTHY before soaking them.First, paint the wooden crosses copper, with copper metallic paint. You could really use any color you desire, but I thought having the cross match the pennies would make it look classier.
Working very carefully!
Ty was at baseball. We saved him a cross to make on Easter Sunday!
After painting the crosses, our paper towels aka placemats, had a cross shaped shadow. I utilized it properly. LOL!
The finished craft.
