Moreys Muse

Don’t have a bag to match your shoes? No problem, just get out your brushes! Morey Dunbar just may be one of the most creative people I know! She shared these projects with me that she did recently with some assorted Modello patterns and metallic and reactive paints and I thought it might inspire you to dig some old purses out of the back of your closet, wipe the dust bunnies off and have at it!


Morey shared a little of her process

I like taking unusual products and utilizing them on unconventional surfaces to see if they work. I’m always playing with something. The purses were all treated with MM metal effect reactive paints to see what would happen. They are copper, bronze and iron. The accents on the copper and bronze are micromarbles. The pattern on the oxidized iron is lusterstone and iron paint mixed and slightly oxidized. The wine satin shoes where done in oxidized iron to match. The detailed were enchanced on them to show up better.

    This week I am faux finishing all of the cabinets in my kitchen. Hope you’ll tune in.

    Yes, I am wondering when Morey is going to send me that purse on the lower left. lol.

    Have something that pretty on the bottom of the glass would certainly inspire you to tip it more! I’m a wino, though! A set of big, red wine goblets with a different image on each one would be fantastic! AND it could work the same way those little wine rings do for differentiating glasses.
