For this piece I used a two toned approach. I painted the base with black milk paint and topped it off with a shade of blue. The idea was to have the black base showing through but somewhere along the line I must have gotten to impatient and eager to try the new technique so the end result was not as I anticipated it to be. Instead I ended up with a finish that is way more textured and antiqued than I had hoped for. This is not to say that I am unhappy with it, as the matter of fact, I think this may easily be one of my best pieces to date, but the look I was going for will be for another piece to enjoy.
This piece has its temporary home at Wild Bird, a Toronto based store located at 622 Mt. Pleasant Road.
Unfortunately these pictures snapped with my phone don't do it justice, but it is the best I have to work with for now.
