I posted last about the toilet paper hardware-
I started gold leafing it at my Caromal Colour Gilding workshop and wanted to finish PRONTO so the bathroom would be back in order. I decided to update the mirror as well –
It seems to have changed color over the years, taking on an orange cast. I decided to brush a Faux Effects crackle size on it –
When it was ready, I brushed on Faux Effects Stain and Seal (Ebony color) –
and watched it crack….
I finished gold leafing the hardware and hung it back on the wall-
I brushed some brown glaze over the crackle.. that didn’t do it…. I brushed some metallic gold into it… that didn’t satisfy my urge… I brushed black glaze over all of that, said, ‘Screw it’ and hung it back up-
Liking it better than the orange gold, but it’s still not where I want it to be, so I’m fiddling again –
MORE Aquacrackle Size…. *sigh.
If you like that hardware update, and would like to see how its done head to this post on Simple Gilding Instructions.
