Aging an urn

So, I'm going to try this again; the blog thing. I love junk. Plain and simple. I love to bring old things to life through experimentation. And I really only like to buy things that are dirt cheap. This one was actually new and I used it for a while in it's "new looking" state before antiquing it. Here is a before and after.

The first one is an unfinished plaster vase/urn that I bought for around $10. I don't remember the exact colors I used on it because I've had it for a while and never intended to need to know, but I'm pretty sure it was a cream acrylic paint and a dark brown glaze.

I'm thinking of consigning it, but I really want to keep it, but I really don't have room for it.
