Did I say I thought I might finish this Master Bedroom last Friday? I’ll be lucky if I finish it by this Friday! I had the three remaining walls done with a light gold metallic striae (on right), but then my client decided she wanted it darker gold with orange. So, now you see the orange layer going over this.
I decided to do my two additional striae layers using water instead of glaze, so it would dry quickly. The wall height is only from the border down, so I don’t even need to be on the ladder and can therefore move very quickly. I have the paint, thinned with water on the left and just a container of water on the right. I keep dipping my brush in the water, then into the thinned painted and then do the striae on the wall. It’s a good aerobic workout!
Here’s the look I am now going for. I like it.
It goes well with the copper foiled border and the accent wall. I put these two layers on last Friday, but was still not done. My client decided she wanted small, randomly placed Ginkgo leaves on top of this.
Here’s a closer look with the border. I now have all the gems glued on the flowers.
Early Monday morning, just as I was getting ready to leave for this house, the homeowner called to say she did not like the orange at all. So, I spent Monday painting over all of this, but the copper border still remains.
