Distressed tin ceiling - will it darken more? X-post + pic
This is a cross-post from the Home Decorating Forum. Someone there suggested that you old home lovers might have some ideas.
I'd asked on the Deco forum about leaving this ceiling as is in its mostly-stripped, distressed state instead of painting it, and the consensus is coming in to leave 'as is'.
The tin has been covered for years by several layers of (no doubt lead-based) paint, and now that it is uncovered, will the tin 'patina'/age/darken further? If so, is there a sealant we can put on to keep it as it? I like its funky irregular look.
Thanks for any advice.
