Completed Projects: No. 6

I've been out shopping the garage again. Here's an old yellowish pottery piece I painted with a mixture of gesso and old leftover paint.

The before picture shows just how ugly it was.

I like the chalky gesso/paint mixture and will age it somewhat after I get a collection of items done.

Next time I will show you the matching lid I made for this from an old tin cake cover I bought at a second hand shop for $1.29.


  1. I wanna go shopping in your garage!
    I can't wait to see finished.

  2. That's a great piece, the transformation is going well!

  3. That's beautiful...I'm just learning about gesso, now I just need to build up my nerves to give it a try. I'm your newest follower, I found you on Debbiedoos blogger. I would love to have a visit from you.
