Today, I felt a little inspired by all those wonderful bloggers that I read each day.
Rosemary at Villabarnes gave a tutorial about using gesso on different items to give an aged look, so I bought some to play with and experimented with that and then some....
When it dried I waxed it.....It definitely looks old.....
While it dried, I played with the tutorial that Rosemary gave, of making "mercury glass" bottles, except mine were two little canning jars.
My pictures aren't the best...but you get the idea. It took two coats, the first being the hardest as the paint doesn't like sticking to glass....
I plan on hanging them I think....but the light shines through...next I will get the liquid silver leaf...I am definitely intrigued.
While all the paint was drying I went out in the garden and dead-headed some plants and cut some roses from my Black Magic Rose which had climbed (it is not a climber, but wanted to be) up into the fig....darn, more roses for the bathroom!
What a day!!
Have a great weekend!
