First stage: sponging on the first layer of terra cotta paint
Next: adding other colours- orange, brown, red, white...
Finished product! Just awaiting grout. (sorry the colours aren't quite right on my camera- it's a little more red than brown)
Today, I made a bench to be part of the scene. Materials used are craft sticks, toothpicks, and paper painted to resemble wrought iron. I'm noticing now that the black paint needs to be touched up a little- amazing the flaws that cameras point out! ;) Here it is, as well as a barrel I made out of toothpicks the other day.
