Introduction: How to Vintage-ize a Compass
How to make a compass look like it lived in the age of exploration.
Step 1: Get Your Materials
•a compass (duh)
•leather, rope, or a chain
Step 2: Prepping
Rip off that lame old string. Then cover the arrow part, because if that gets painted on its useless.
Step 3: Paint
I added a layer of black to tone down the bright orange and to make it look more aged, then paint it with a metallic color like silver or bronze. Then take the tape off
Step 4: Details
Add details to the front like a drawing or a symbol. I cut the top off of a small candle then glued it on.
Step 5: DONE!
Step back and enjoy your work!
