Angel Makeover

I was in the zone with this transformation, before I realized I hadn't taken a before. Trust me, it was rather blah.



After I finished this angel, I just had to create a crown for her.  The angel is composition.  The crown is salvaged metal.  I just gave them the same finish.




I used the same homemade paint I used with the bird from my last post.  You can review that post HERE. However, I varied the consistency with each layer.




Distressing here and there gave me the look I wanted.  I LUV it.




While I was at it, I painted this cross.









I have more items to create, and, transform.

See ya soon.

  13. Rosemary ... I love your technique ... just amazing ... it looks like it has been painted many times ... so time-worn. Must try it sometime. Hope I can get somewhere close to that look.
    Thanks for stopping by Timeless Treasures with a nice comment.
