I really love thrifting mirrors and frames, mainly the one that have lots of details for me to work with. They are so much fun to refinish, glaze, revamp, etc etc etc.
This small oval was a perfect one for my project: a small profile of Sofia to put in my craft room.
( you can check what I did with the big red guy to the left here).
So, first, yes, of course, spray paint!
Next, my easy small project glazing method: one part of acrylic craft paint (black) and 3 parts glazing medium
wipe off and it beautifully stays in all the nooks and crannies
awww...loving it already!
Now, to the second part of the project:
I used tracing paper because I thought it was easier to see the real profile when traced, does it make sense I wonder...?
I then attached it to the black paper to cut
Add the glazed frame
An additional shabby touch...
And there she is...
Sofia on the wall...
I loved this profile project so much that I came up with another one....easier!!
