I am finally painting the beads.
I have these done so far, and I separated them into trays depending on what kind of finish they get.
These will get a matte varnish
These will get a satin varnish
These are waiting to have the crackle technique done to them, then they will be a gloss finish
Here is a little before and after pic of the matte beads, before the antique layer and after.............
all pretty and bright
I never get tired of that before and after !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So I will painting more tonight, I have a lot more to do. More then what got done today. then everything needs varnish. I am trying not to think about how much I need to do, and just keep going!
