I recently joined
Cape Cod Mayflower Decorative Artists Chapter
recently came to teach
We could use a surface of our choice for the project
I chose this wood basket.
I have it base coated with the line drawing transferred.
Everyone is hard at work on their projects!
This is my project as I was working on it.
Lynne is not only a great teacher but she is also fun to paint with!
I did not complete my project in class!
I brought it home to complete it.
After the lettering was complete
I gave it several light sprays
Krylon Workable Fixative.
The "fixative" will set your lettering
before you varnish
prevent any smearing!
I applied several coats
Dura Clear Matte Varnish
to my piece.
This is the finished top to my basket.
The saying on the top of the basket reads:
"Where is HEAVEN? Is it not just a friendly garden plot, walled in stone and roofed with sun, where the days pass one by one, Surely God is in this place, for I have seen Him : face to face. "
This is a side view of the basket.
Here my finished basket.
This was a fun SpRiNg Thyme project to paint!
Happy Painting !
