I've been playing around with adding textures to several different projects that I've been working on and enjoying the outcome.
This iron and metal caddy was solid black to begin with.
Dry and boring in my opinion. ~hey look, I have a before photo for a change ;)
So I thought I'd play around with giving it some texture and color.
I let some of the black come through but added several layers of colors so it wouldn't be so plain and also adding gesso to build up the texture. Using a similar technique that I posted about the other day using Rosemary at Villabarnes as inspiration. If you would like to see the projects I did the other day, click here.
I really like how it turned out. What do you think? Not so boring now?
Normally the only surfaces that I paint on are either wood or tile. So this little project was new to me but it was fun to see the transformation by just adding some texture and layers of color.
Thanks so much for stopping by
