I have this really great print. It’s a limited edition by a Washington artist named Violet Skiles. it was a present from my mother-in-law over 20 years ago. It’s been in my son’s bathroom for the last 10 and I’ve always said “I need to do something with that frame.
I probably should of sanded the wood first, but didn’t. And I put 2 coats of red on, was a little impatient waiting for it to dry, and it bubbled a bit. So…..since I’m making my own rules and really don’t know what I’m doing, I took some sandpaper and did a little distressing. Then I took a gold painters pen and accented the frame by highlighting the grooves. Finishing touch was a gloss spray to seal it.
Lesson to self: Do not ever again force a piece of glass back into a picture frame. It will break. I’m lucky I had an extra piece of glass hanging around.
I actually think it turned out pretty good and I’m happy with the end result. What do you think? (ignore the reflection….sorry, bad photo day)
