This is a retro style hat rack which is one of my first real projects that was finished about 15 years ago.
It is painted by using traditional techniques called “dekorationsmålning” in Swedish which can be translated to “decorative painting”. Glazing paint (green umbra) was applied with long parallel strokes so that the bottom paint (very ligth green) shines through. This causes a nice long stroke pattern called “långhalm” in Swedish which could be translated to “long straw”. The hat rack has been in use ever since it was finished.
