Here's the cabinet that I showed you last week that I was working on in this post here. I finished and delivered it Friday, along with another small one that I'll show you later.
That means I still have a large armoire to finish by the beginning of next week, for the same client but a different house. It'll be WAY different than this. The armoire is going to be in cream with accents of turquoise and brown possibly with a bird sitting on a branch. So if I'm not visiting your blogs as much right now I apologize... tight deadlines!
This photo above shows the third step in the process. First was prepping and painting it dark green (thank you Hubby for that part!) Second step was cutting the stencils and applying a raised texture through the stencils. Third step is to glue on crinkled tissue paper to give it a leather look.
Fourth step, paint the tissue and raised stencil areas green. Fifth step, add gold leaf accents. Sixth step, antique with a raw umber glaze, and last step is to seal it.
I didn't get the best photos of it because I finished it 7:00 at night and dragged it outside quickly to get photos before the sun went down.
Oh yeah, actually it's not quite finished! The client wants me to add a touch of gold to the raised stencil areas so they pop out more. The study that it goes in is dark so you don't notice the details as much. I'll show photos of that when it's DONE done, but that'll be a while from now.
So now I'm off to go make a blue card of some sort for the Summer Of Color!
Oh, and because I apparently think I don't have enough on my plate right now (LOL!) I'm taking a fantastic online class that just started yesterday called Plaster Studio Workshop! Which is taught by Stephanie Lee and Judy Wise... the authors of my new favorite book "Plaster Studio". Oh my goodness... if you can't take the class (registration closes on the 15th I think) then you have to at least get this book! WOW!! It's right up my alley. Woohooooo!!!
