Would you believe me if I told you that this used to be an old plastic night light that I found at the Goodwill?
Take a look again.
When I found it, the plastic had taken on a shiny, peachy color and it wasn't in very good shape.
However, it is the Infant of Prague and since I do collect them, I just had to bring Him home with me.
The other thing that was bugging me was this blue paint. Do you see how it was over sprayed onto the body and other sleeve? I needed to fix this.
A can of gray spray paint, a bottle of white gesso, a paintbrush, and plenty of paper towels. Yep, that's all I needed.
For those of you who read Rosemary's blog Villabarnes, you've probably already seen this technique.
If you haven't, you've got to visit her. I discovered this painting technique while reading her blog.
Anyway, you just paint your object gray. When it dries, brush over it with white gesso (small sections at a time - it dries quickly) and wipe off with a paper towel.
Brilliant. Thank you Rosemary!!
So here He is again
I couldn't stop there though. I painted several frames that I had too.
These were just plain wood with little metal filigree scrolls in the corners
and this one was one of those gold plastic Syrocco frames.
Have a great weekend!
