Not too long ago I posted about my Antique Banff Springs Hotel Mirror.
Well … I’m almost 100% sure that the black part was not originally there as there were a few flaking bits that showed gold underneath.
Now, I was not looking to restore it to the original condition but I did want to bring it back to it’s gold glory!
Here it is now …..
Hotel Beautiful once again!
I used 3 coats of Fusion’s Gold Metallic paint. When it was set I applied some antiquing glaze to the whole piece. I found it didn’t give me the effect that I was looking for with this piece so I ended up using some dark antiquing wax over the glaze to “dirty” it up a bit. We don’t want it to look too new again ;)
I hope you have a great start to your week!
I just want to say thank you again to all my faithful linkers who remember to link up to my small party! Your support and friendship in supporting this new(ish) growing party means so much!
THANK YOU for taking the time to share your talents here each week!
