Decorating A Foyer Medallion…

A before

First a primer base

now make it gold

It looked cool that evening I left

but more to come.  Starting to glaze this pretty thing

Voila!

Not so fast…  there was this thing called a SEAM…  you can see it here (click it)

I learned a lesson on this job.  I won”t start over an imperfection again – some things we can make go away with paint techniques, but not a structural defect.

The painter repaired the seam, then re-basecoated it for me.  Then I came back and goldened it once again…

then glazed once more.     Beautiful!

  2. What brand paint did you use to do this???? It’s gorgeous!!!!!

    • I think this one was Modern Masters Antique Bronze on the trim and medallion center, and Pale Gold on the flat surface. Usually I overglaze with Mastercreme and tints or cut with Stain and Seal stains – gives a nice antique to the finish.
