On the first piece, a very ornate chair that has unusual wooden carvings - in the form of bows and draped materials on the sides (I have never seen this particular pattern before), I wanted to highlight the carvings and was trying to decide between using a two-toned paint treatment - letting each show to highlight the woodwork or using dark wax to fill in and accent the crevices. I decided to do the first coat in old white and use duck egg blue on top of the first coat leaving quite a bit of white space behind.
Here is the result:
|Duck Egg Blue with Different Quantities of Old White - I added some - but not as much as 50%|
Part III of this series won't happen until the chairs come back in their new fabric! I can't wait!
