This piece was for a sweet gal who lives many states away. After many sample boards, emails, text and pictures…we were on a roll!
After the patching, sanding and few coats of primer was complete, the first layer of the process began...
I had this metal screen that my brother gave me a while back and always knew I would find a good use for it. When my client mentioned she wanted to replace the glass with some sort of metal, I knew this would be the perfect fit. I did have to spray it oil rubbed bronze because there was too much gold peaking but it is a great contrast with the black glazing.
Cutting this product was not an easy task... my hands were so sore afterwards because it was a very thick gauge wire and I had to clip each wire individually.
Couple layers of glaze and a clear coat of lacquer later…perfection!
Don't you just love the blingy hardware! They are from Anthropology and beautiful!
Love how the detail stands out with the glazing. Did my little 'flecking' effect with a hand dandy toothbrush:)
