So today's adventure I roped her in on was re doing the show demonstration stands.
For the last 4 yrs they have been covered in Blonde Moments papers, and I thought I would like to paint them in my own imitable style.
I spent most of Friday night stripping them down, which was not a job for the faint hearted..!! So after a good sand from Su, this is what we started with.
I primed them whilst Su.......err drank tea......!!!
And then I painted them whilst Su.....drank tea...!!!!
I then drew the designs on.
And we based them out in white. Now Su has never done anything like this before and was really nervous, but I had faith in her and just guided her along the way, step by step.
Now the fun begins. Adding the colours.
Think she needs a bit of a sugar rush...Actually that was her fee for the day..!!!
Su,s favourite bit was painting the spots.
The shading is what takes the time but it makes everything come alive.
Now its time for the details. The outlining and snow.
And that's my one finished. This is Su,s before I added the finishing touches. Didn't she do a fab job once she lost her nerves...???
