CHIPPY FLEUR DE LIS SIGNS

I did not expect to be so worn out after my last show, but, my body just refused to do much of anything until a few days ago.



After a bit of rest, I'm cutting, and, painting fleur de lis signs.




I hand cut these, and, gave them this chippy, weathered finish.  I used a bit of homemade paint from the Farragoz course, along with my own mixtures.  It was a mad scientist moment.





I added "Chateau" in script.  On the heart, I also added a touch of scrolling.






They will be available in my Etsy shop, and, at my next show.  I'll keep you posted.
