Everything is emerging from the snow, finally. You might notice how bleached and weathered some things look, like wood or twigs, and antlers. This is a feature of how sunlight, snow, wind, rain and general thrashing about in a creek or on the beach gives things a thumping.

The sand on beaches can give rounded edges to sharp roots, or take the paint off if it's a beaten up piece of a boat. Nature is such a master artist at this, it's hard to emulate it. I've sorted out a few weathering and distressing techniques that I use frequently while crafting. These are ways I've found that give a good patina on many surfaces - but they're not the only ones. You may have some that work best for your situation or the crafts you're working on.

Join the Rustic And Succulents Group to share your ideas and inspiration, we'd love to have you!

When you've built something you're proud of, brag it up! Most groups love to hear what others have been doing, so share your pictures on there with a write up on the project.

Or, you could share them on the Rustic Crafts page - scroll to the bottom of the page!
