It’s an honor and privilege to be able to age and grow older. Now I need reading glasses with my contacts…and the reading glasses were less than exciting. I bought several cheap pairs and they just looked blah. I had to find a way to embrace them…so I turned to the rainbow and transformed these into wearable art in the video below.
These are super cheap plastic glasses so I needed some paint that would stick to a non-porous surface. Vintaj Patina are officially for metals, but I thought they’d do a great job on plastic. And they did- stuck wonderfully to the plastic!
Here’s what they look like all finished. My $3 reading glasses are now something I look forward to wearing instead of avoiding!
In the video, I wear gloves. Why? This stuff really sticks to hands and does not wash off easily with soap and water. But what will take it off is rubbing alcohol. So I have some Qtips and rubbing alcohol on standby as I create just in case any of the Vintaj Patina goes where I don’t want it.

This aging stuff could actually be fun…as long as I can work the rainbow into it!
