Painting teaser

luvstocraftAugust 14, 2009

Started painting another tray. This one had already been basecoated so couldn't get a "before" shot for you, but I thought I'd post this little "teaser" and make you wait to see the finished project.

This is at about the point where I like to go spray a coat of Krylon matte on it so that if I mess up and need to remove any of the details that I paint on top of this, it won't erase the basecoated part.

Luvs....looking good. I have used a spray on sealer between layers and it really helps me. Can hardly wait to see the end results.

We stopped a Garage Sale today and my first thought was "find something to paint on" Silly sale was all guy stuff. Well almost, I paid $2.00 for a beautiful old- really old - mirror. I remember my GGM having one over her bathroom sink. Now I have to figure out where to put it.

Oh, that's gonna be a cool one. Scarecrow with acorns? Am I right? And are you going to keep posting as you paint? Fun, Fun. Hope you hurry and finish it cuz I'm excited to see the finished project. Punk

Yep, Punk, you are right. It's a design by Laurie Speltz from an October 2005 Painting magazine. See I told you I keep allot of my old magazines and refer back to them at least seasonally.

Belle, you'll have to share a picture of your mirror with us. I love finding a bargain at GS, YS, and TS. Of course, the thrill of the hunt is the best part! ;o)

Anj, I knew you would enjoy the suspense of a little teaser. LOL

Thanks for your patience, here's the final project.
