Here's another little table that I just finished. I really am having far to much fun...These little tables make quick projects, that I can try different paint techniques, colors and images on. :)
My daughter thought I should do a Sea Shell on this one ...So after painting it Sea Foam Pearl by BEHR
I was off to Graphics Fairy where I found this wonderful image of a large shell. I printed it up and used the same Mod Podge technic that I did on my Yellow Bee Hive Table... You can find the tutorial Here
This time the paper seemed harder to get off but I'm not sure why. Anyway after a little elbow grease I got it to where I wanted it...But something was missing...
COLOR...I just wasn't lovin the black shell against the blue green table...So I got out my acrylic paints watered them down and added color....Not a whole bunch mind you...Just a little blue green to the outer shell and a very light pink to the inner shell....better but now it felt to strong...
So I got out my sandpaper...Again...and lightly sanded it...Much better!! :)
I then added a very watered down brown for the shell to "sit" on...Scattered some brown speckles around and distressed the whole table by, yet again, sanding. :)
I finished it with a several coats of Krylon's Crystal Clear Acrylic Finish in Satin...Then trotted down to my cousin's cabin, on Liberty Bay to take the pictures. :)
Yet again...I will be linking up to many of the party's on my side bar...so please check them out!!
And - Yup...
