Looks nice Roderick.

The distressing/aging... did you sponge, flick and splatter it?
Sure I paint thing for my amusement and then offer them for sale. A brushslinger could whither en die from lack of creativity in this plastic town my horse threw a shoe in. :shock:

Hi Tyler,
The background is antiqued silver mirror and the gold leaf is antiqued oil and water gilded leaf , 12k.18k.22k and 23k. Here is a link to my face book page that shows the whole process.No paint splatter or sponging.

Another fine looking piece...You've really got that antiquing process well sorted.

Is that a real name???...I'm still trying to work out how to pronounce it! If feel sure there may be some weird or cryptic meaning going on there, but I'm missing it...hahaha
