I've been taking it a little easy these past few days. It has been hot and humid. Officially 102 yesterday, and a thunderstorm today. So, I've been playing with finishes (inside), and organizing finds.
I gave this decorative piece a worn finish.
This plaque was plain wood as well. I covered it in white gesso first, followed by caribbean blue paint, a black gesso wash, and a little sanding.
I found these in the basement of an estate sale, wrapped in old newspaper.
Of course I love the rose details. There are twice as many as you see here.
Used my stone effect on one piece.
I will probably experiment with other techniques on a few of the others.
From dramatic to subdued.
These are just a few of the finishes I have swimming in my head when I contemplate my redesigns.
Here are a few recent finds.
One of these will get a finish like the first piece. Which one do you think it will be? See ya soon.
