I haven’t used the gold candlestick yet but I have created something with those 2 wooden bowls. I’ve had pedestals on the brain lately, so…
Here’s how it all went down:
1st. I sanded the bowls. One had some rough edges & the other had some nasty gold paint on the inside.
2nd. I glued them together using the infamous E6000, weighted it together & leveled it.
P.S. That book isn’t as helpful as you may think.
3rd. I used 2 coats of Krylon Primer.
4th. I painted it with 3 coats of Krylon Bright Idea, Gloss.
5th. I mixed up some orange & white craft paint with a little water & painted it on for some depth & texture using a glazing technique.
6th. Distressed it using some sandpaper & glazed it with Ralph Lauren black glaze. If you want a good place to learn about glazing, click HERE.
7th. I painted 2 coats with Krylon Clear Finish.
Once again, the finished creation…
I used the yellow paint to tie in with those flowers in the painting. I really need to brighten up this shelf! Once it’s finished, I’ll blog all about it.
I love how the dish turned out! Thanks for visiting & enjoy your upcoming week!!
