Antique a Frame

Source: Martha Stewart Living, December 2003


Speed time's passage by applying liquid shoe polish to a new silver- or gold-painted frame, giving it an "antique" patina. Choose a frame with raised details, and use a cotton rag to rub the surface with brown polish (reach into crevices with cotton swabs). Continue until the desired look is achieved; let polish dry.
