My art is not for the faint hearted wood people. And I know you are out there wishing I didn’t glam up this piece. But teenagers need special pieces and this yard sale find wasn’t making anyone smile.
Makeup Vanity GLAM Style!
Those of you who follow my work know that I go over the top. And wow did I lose any trace of “mellow” on this babe. She looks good- and don’t get me wrong, it’s a perfectly ordinary and normal piece of wood. But that’s not me :)
I’m a nurse. I took an oath. So there wasn’t much time for painting. When I finally had some time to do something therapeutic, I chose glitter and happiness. We cried. We suffered. We bonded. And during recovery , we took up old hobbies that had been cast aside. I primed this piece with Miss Lillian’s primer after cleaning with no step prep from the same brand. I love how clean and prepped it feels after these steps.
This product stops bleeding and tannins. I knew I’d use light colors so this was a MUST
I’m just getting started here. But I know it can’t be mundane. It needs fun. Laughter. Some of the things that 2020 tried to take from many of us. Eventually this made a teenager squeal with delight
The pink paint is a combo of Miss Lillian’s raspberry sorbet and heartthrob. I wanted to come close to the art that Piece Prints customized for me. They are amazing. The top was done with an Epoxy Resin pour. I used multiple colors and textures of glitter for the effect. Every time I do a resin pour, I vow to never do it again.
But I wanted to show you the art!
Before the staging... the resin pour is leveling in the shots. It takes days to settle flat- but when it finally does, it’s like glass. You need a heat gun and hot sun and TIME! I stay nearby and chase every drip with a rag. It’s a mess but I love the look.
Thanks for reading through and feel free to ask me anything at all. There’s a video of the resin pour on my Instagram page and also on my Facebook. You can find me here on Hometalk, Etsy, Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram.
stay Healthy and well.
