Salvage

I have been learning how to distress and give an aged look to a second hand mirror.
Originally it was a very orangy would.
I painted it gold, rub bed areas with candle wax and then gave it a top coat of watered down white acrylic.

Then the wax is rubbed or picked off to reveal the gold beneath. You can see this in the bottom of the photo. Tomorrow I will remove all of the wax when I can get inside. Along with the decoupage experiments my mums sewing corner is now full of wet paint and glues.

I would love a workshop…
