first cleaned the tiles. 2. put grout into places where needed. 3. used latex semi gloss and natural sponge to create the faux finish. 4 covered the tiled area with several coats of
polyurethane (water based ) 5. caught the area around tub. It's holding like a charm, taking showers, splashing water on it and cleaning it. Just make sure the polyurethane is covering EVERY AREA of the tiles.
Emu eggshells are smaller than the ostrich eggshells of course. They are also thinner. Not only that, the Emu egg is a deep, dark, emerald green on the outside but beneath that outer
shell there are several layers that have different color pigments. Right beneath the dark green is a thin layer of gray. Beneath that a teal color that sometimes is more turquoise than teal and as beautiful as a gem. The last layer in every emu eggshell is snow white and paper thin. To expose this through carving is very difficult. But I used the different layers to carve relief work into the shells. Since I have been asked to show more of my work, here are more photos.
Our kitchen is facing north and has one small window, hence there was not much light. The knotty pine look was getting on my nerves and so did the ugly, red Formica counter top, including
a 70th look linoleum brick floor all worn and the wood work being a very dark brown didn't help to make this kitchen into a cheery place to work in. I love light! Especially during Colorado's long winter month. I remodeled this entire kitchen from top to bottom for less than $900.00
