Painting on Screen
Always wondered how to paint on
Last season while out antiquing I picked up these two window sashes.
Not sure at the time what I had planned for them
so they sat in my studio till I started decorating
Here they are, on my front bench
do you see them.
Once the snow melted and the ice thawed I
cleaned them up and they sat once
again in my studio .............
I happened to stumble on them
while I was looking for something and thought
it's time......So I cleaned them up.....
Asked Mr. WWH to add some screening to the backs of them.
Miss A. and I got started......brought out the carryall
with all the paints, brushes and paper.
I keep a roll of Kraft paper to lay out on my
harvest table for just such occasions........
First we painted a background on the screen.
Miss A. painted hers blue and then
stenciled on white snowflakes.
While that was drying she whitewashed the wooden sash.
Then added a wee caption........
"Let it Snow"
For mine I wanted a Harvest theme......so I painted pumpkins.......
Then I added a few paints together and applied
it to the frame.
( I did take before pictures...but when cleaning up
my pictures I somehow deleted them.)
One word of caution.....
Make sure you load up our paint brush with
lots of paint......
Again we used $ store paints.
Have some fun and try your hand at
