Doesn’t it show what different colouring can do for a project.
Admittedly I have internally framed one, but both were stack cut.
As these were cut using ply and our ply here is very noticeably different in the layers, I decided to paint the back and the inside cuts with black to hopefully just show the front panel of wood. I think I achieved this and it these look so much better than the first couple I did.
After painting I sanded the front just to get some of the accidental spray off then stained them and spray coated with poly.
I am actually getting the hang of cutting glass now, so watch out unused photo frames etc I am wielding a glass cutter!!!!!
The etched mirror was the first in the long line of etching for me. It is sooooooo much fun and relaxing. This is another etched mirror. The pictures I use are either found on the net or are stencils from books.
