A Few Projects

I've been painting and altering all day.  Just wanted to share a few of the projects I finished today.    "Old World" finishes, "Splendid Transfer", and "Dimension" paint seemed to be the theme.  I gave this chandelier (including the light sleeve) an old world finish with a grey undertone and gesso wash.











I made more raised relief tags with my dimension paint and stencils.








I decoupaged the flip side with vintage paper, added a fleur de li, and washed it with gesso.





This Paris Chandeliers sign I designed is a combination of methods.  I added dimension designs to the corners of a piece of masonite I cut.  I followed up with an old world finish, and applied the image and lettering with my splendid blender pen.  I gave it just a hint of dry brushing over the image.




I think I'm done for today.   See ya soon.

    I seem to be in a 'funk' now, and for awhile. Not getting much of anything done.
