I used the paint and gesso recipes from the Farragoz course.
The design is my own.
The image is from my ephemera collection. I've used it many times. It's the image used in my "Splendid Transfer" tutorial.
I thought it was perfect for this redesign.
I have two panels like this. I haven't finished the other one yet. I don't have a photo of what they looked like before I started painting them, but here they are with the base coat of grey.
After I had it base coated, I applied layers of homemade gesso. Then I had fun distressing the finish. The various shades of white and grey make a great background for my image.
I'll be doing similar pieces, because, I'm really happy with the way this one turned out.

Beautiful transformation of a common dull door into a treasured piece of bliss. Happy Creative Hearts...ReplyDelete
I love it, Rosemary! I love the paint technique you did, too. I have a door off a nightstand I bought the other day that I am going to do something with. It is not as nicely detailed as yours with the molding, but I'll try to dress it up a bit with those wood embellishments.ReplyDelete
I love it Rosemary. Very pretty.ReplyDelete

That panel is fabulous. Your urn happens to be one of my favorite images that you use and it's perfect for this project.ReplyDelete
Lovely - Ever so lovely! Had to go and read the tutorial you posted as well. Did not know about the blender pen - good info! Your panel is beautiful - such an elegant transfer image too. Well Done! CatherineReplyDelete
Love this look Rosemary. I have a jar of gesso I got at the craft store. If I were to try this on a few statues I have would you recommend that I water the gesso down or do you use it straight from the jar? When you say layers of gesso it looks to me like it may be of a thinner consistency. Your thoughts would be appreciated. I got the little statues, busts really, at auction and have been wanting to try your gesso technique on them.ReplyDelete
Absolutely Beautiful!!!! Pinning!!ReplyDelete

It turned out beautiful. I can see a sconce attached with crystals. It would look perfect leaning against a wall on a mantel. You do have such a great talent. AlainaReplyDelete

How do you seal the pieces after you put on the transfer image?ReplyDelete
You can use whatever sealer you want. It can be wax, polyurethane, varnish, spray acrylic, etc. Just make sure the piece is dry before you seal it.Delete
Bravo c'est juste magnifique.....j'adore!!!!ReplyDelete
Bonne année 2020
