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.
