I’ve got another project in the shop that I don’t exactly care for but I can’t seem to tell the church no. The parish has recieved a 4’x5’ painting that is a sizeable donation. I hate painting, I especially hate painting wood, but that’s what is beiing asked for specifically a gold tone to be simmilar to the other items on the altar. Since the painiting is so nice I don’t want to muck up the paint job on the frame and I’m hoping the wealth of experience here can help me. From what I know so far I intend to;
- Prime all surfaces with kilz primer
- Spray 1 coat of deep red
- Spray 1 to 2 coats of metalic gold
Then either use dark wood paste wax or a brown gel stain over the paint to mute the metalic shine of the gold spray.

If i’m completely bass-akwards with what I’m thinking feel free totell me so, i need the help and am humble enough to know I don’t know how to do this but I do know where to find some great people that do!

Many thanks!!!
