Hello and today I would like to show you a frame I bought from a charity shop in Bakewell foe £1.00
and show you what i have done to it.
This is how it started
I painted over it with gesso
then it was painted with a perlesent bronze paint
I then got a sponge and some white perlesant paint and sort of stipled it on
This is how it looked
For the inside i measured the area the cut piece of card the same side
and cut some nice gold patterned paper just a bit bigger
I cut the corners off to help to fold and stick the edges down
This is what it looks like
I then added some lace and tuck it in to the frame
I have also used gilding flakes all over it buy putting some flake glue on a sponge and dabbing on to certain areas.
I have decorated with flowers a tonic fairy die pearls and some jewelry found in a car boot,
the test tube is filled with fake pearls.
and finally some close ups.
I hope you like and please comment and let me know.
