One of my sisters and I recreated an artwork grouping of painted mirrors as requested by the client.
We used nine 12″ square glass mirrors and ‘antiqued/aged’ the edges by lightly spraying black permanent paint onto them. Also used was a stick-on ‘chrome’ edging, meant for automobile decoration, as frames.
Then we attacked the image by first sketching-by-eyeballing the branches and then going over that with multiple colors of acrylic craft paint to coordinate with the client’s décor of chocolate brown, ‘metallic’ gold, white and black.
[Chocolate brown with black was good for the branch shadow. Adding this gold to brown with a smidge of black = bronze, the blossom color; the mix of this gold+white and a smidge of brown gives a highlighting caramel color.]
Enjoyable but exhausting 21+ hours… and the clients were very pleased 🙂
I am happy to share links to the products if you make the request. There are too numerous YouTubes watched for this to list – do a search.
