Refinishing Metal Angel Wings...


My sister and her husband flew down last week to help me with ongoing family issues. They're staying for 2 weeks...WOO HOO!!! For those of you who follow my blog, you may remember a set of angel wings that I finished for my home. I had purchased another set for my sister...but wasn't able to get to them until now...
Originally I painted them a antiqued gold...but it looked like they should have been in Liberace's home. So I began to play. I did several...ok...many washes of antiqued bronze and metallic black. Finally got satisfied with the finish. Often when you see pictures of angels, their wings are highlighted in pink and white. So...I started to play again. I had purchased some pale pink and white crackle paint, so I decided to try that. I did a wash of the pink and white and then highlighted many areas with just the pink. I didn't get any of the crackling that I expected...but still luv the color.
Believe me...I'm no Picasso...but I luv the way these angel wings turned out. How about you? Would luv to hear your comments on my latest project.
