Is now Fab!
This is a prime example of the magic of paint.
Accentuating the positive
And adding shapely curves where there were none…..
I started with a base coat of Tiffany blue (my favorite aqua), then painted the accents with a mustard yellow topped with marigold yellow.
Never one to leave well enough alone, I highlighted the lines with high-pigment metallic gold and bronze.
Finished with clear and dark wax, giving the blue and yellow a warm depth.
Then, after perfecting every line, I distressed the hell out of it….:)
I never decided a direction I wanted to go with this design. I only knew the colors I wanted to use. I just started painting, and let my Muse take the lead. When I allow a design to occur organically, and not over-think it, it tends to fall into place rather quickly. I usually love the end result more too!
Well, off I go. In my next post, I'll be showing you all the new treasures waiting for chalk paint magic.
