This was the project for Saturdays class.
We started by gluing down the letters and the small hart.
When that was dry, we painted it a coat of white paint.
One coat is enough, because you will paint a top coat in
a colour of your choice.
Let the paint dry before you start with the next coat.
(Ok, I missed a few photos in between....)
Paint the hart the colour of your choice and see that you have all the
nooks and crannies covered.
After the paint has dried, it is time to apply your wax.
Always the clear wax first. Remember you don't want to see
patches of wax, so take your mutton cloth and rub it evenly
over the whole piece.
After the wax has settled and dried, you can sand down
the top layer of paint is certain places so that the piece
has a natural worn look.
Finish off with a mixture of light and dark wax.
The results are stunning.
The next class will be on the 1st of March.
At Sweet Scrappins.
