Mirror, Mirror


The original color of this mirror was a bright yellow.  Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® was layered and blended starting with French Linen in a solid first coat. Paris Grey, Louis Blue and Duck Egg Blue were added for depth and texture alone and mixed with Old White. Clear and Dark Wax. Gilding wax provided gold highlights.

Mirrors are some of my favorite pieces to paint. For more mirror inspiration see my posts  Another Sunburst Mirror, Mirror Image, and DIY Sunburst Mirror
