I promissed to show you the before of the tray I used in my pictures of the mothers day gift boxes post. I love these Italian trays. They are light weight and come in all different sizes, shapes and designs. I collect them for my shop.
My little tray started out looking like this. Not bad but not great eighter.
I used my favorite acrylic paints. These are the colours I used:
- 481 Aqua
- 444 Patina
I first started by cleaning the tray. Then two coats of Aqua using a foam brush. Afther that I used the dry brush technique using not a brush but a cut down washing up sponge with colour Patina. I totally love the result. I will surley be updating a few more of my trays to sell in my shop.
Thank you for stopping by see you next time.
