This view is from the second floor hallway, looking down to the landing.
You can see some of the crystals on the flowers in this photo.
The second floor hallway.
This is the diamond wall, before the furniture is placed back. I have about 8 layers of various gold products on this wall! I wanted to do it using just Gold StucoLux, but it was soooo thin and watery that the layers would not build up and it did not burnish. After four unsuccessful layers, I added layers of gold glaze mixes to get the color and sheen I was looking for with the StucoLux. I have used non-metallic colors of StucoLux before with great success, so was quite disappointed with this gold and would not recommend it.
The same crystals, in a larger size, are placed at the corners where the points of the diamonds meet (hard to see here).
This wall does have a nice glow to it now and works well with the stripes and adjacent back hall.
Thanks Chris, for all your help and hard work!
