A Denim Blue


This mirror was probably originally part of a dressing table, or vanity, but on its own I thought it still had interesting lines.  I wanted to paint it a denim blue that looks like old faded blue jeans. I used Graphite for the first coat. Aubusson Blue and Greek Blue each in light layers and also each mixed with Old White. Coco was used for additional shadows and Old White for highlights. Finished with clear wax.
