I got this shabby old thing at, you got it, Goodwill! No surprise there. It is cast metal with a brass candle holder. I must start taking pictures of my treasures when I first get home because once the vision hits there is no turning back. So here is as close to before as I could get.
As you can see I primed it and the gave it a spray of RED....squeal
Next I used black paint mixed with a little water and just brused it all over. Then used a damp microfiber cloth to remove most of the black paint.
Not enough.......One more coat of black and wipe....
Now that is the goodness that I am lookin for!
Ooops...forgot about the candle base...
Love me some ORB goodness but held it up to the sconce and it was not working....next
Flat Black...now that is right on time!
Let's put this baby together....
Better view of the color.
Pieces with mirror are my nemesis. I can't get a good shot of them. Any tips?
