I used a patina for it that I had already.  It's basically an acid that erodes the metal (then you seal it when you want it to stop, which I used a sealer that I use for painting).  I already had some sitting around from other metal projects, but you can get it in those sets for painting stuff, like wood, to make it look metal.  They sell the sets at most craft stores.

Ah, I'm glad you explained that because I was just going to ask what a patina was.  I think it looks lovely.  The mesh that I saw already had rubber washer-like things around it.  I had an interesting idea with it, but it wasn't going to pan out well.  I'm glad this worked for you.

That's gorgeous! I like your use of the patina too, makes it look so uniquely antique.
