let me begin by saying that i am not traditionally religious,..but i am rather fascinated by religious art.
these pieces however, were proving a little dull.
so,.. armed with my trusty colour bible,..(and 3 whining children), i headed off to the hardware store for some paint.
i had already decided that turquoise on the wood frames would give the images a lift,..and there happened to be a wall painted the perfect hue in 'etc'.
consequently, i was able to choose my colour very quickly. people tend to get overwhelmed by the choice of paint colours,... don't get bogged down with it,. take a book/magazine/piece of fabric to match, and when looking at lots of colours on the same spectrum, go with the first one that catches your eye,. it usually does so for a reason.
i gave the frames a quick sand,...painted a rustic, uneven coat of turquoise on, and then re-sanded once it had dried.
a much more current look,..and will look smashing against a cream or camel coloured wall.
someone will love them!
now,...i'm off to see what else i can paint turquoise.......
