I wrapped up my first ever Elegant Reflections class earlier this week. It may be illegal to have that much fun! Of course, not everyone gets their kicks by stripping the paint off the backs of mirrors and pouring stinky sulphury stuff over the them to create wild patination patterns…..but some of us do……
Like Julie Stonehouse…
and Georgia Morrow….
I’m SO sorry I didn’t get a picture of Regina Garay, who was here, and has posted about the class on her Fauxology blog. Regina! What bad bloggers we are to not even get a photo of us together!!! Next time….meantime, I think one of my favorite samples that came out of the class was this one above of Regina’s. But there are many more….
Julie’s 23K Gold Leaf Chrysanthemums and glass etching….
My Art Deco Palm Trees…
The dreaming girl with heavy patination…..
The woven linen look through the removed silver…..
Michelle’s heavy distressed and coppered pattern. Here, you are actually looking at the BACK of the mirror, which gets these crazy colors happening and can then be sealed and used as an art piece….
her WAY cool copper and silver number…
An allover pattern with paint, leaf and stain….
and my gilded delicate lattice over light patination. I’m STILL inspired and have some stinky samples “cooking” as I write. Gotta go!!!
Psssst! Next Elegant Reflections class is February 9-10, 2009.
