In my last post, I said I planned to paint the red vintage lantern that was in that post.
So, here it is...Not finished, but in progress.
I painted it with One-Step Paint in Kembel since I already had that paint color out when I painted the spotted chicken HERE.
I'm letting that dry, then I'll add a little more dark wax. I would've kept going in one setting, but more dark wax was coming off then going on.
By letting it dry the wax will set and I'll be able to add more dark wax without rubbing off what's already there.
It seemed the red only looked good in the house with the red and green decorations of Christmas.
And, since we're still on a decluttering/downsizing kick, I have vowed to either "use it" or "lose it" with as much stuff as I possibly can. No more storing things away if I can find a way to keep them out all year.
If you're not familiar with waxing, using clear wax makes it easier to put the dark wax on without it globbing up. If too much dark wax builds up, just use some clear wax to remove as much as you need to remove.
Well, that's where I'm at right now, but I'm putting the waxing on hold for a little while. I'm flying out to California to help my mother move.
I grew up in the wine country in a little town called Sonoma on the other side of the hill from Napa. Most people are more familiar with Napa than Sonoma, but I think they're missing out.
Sonoma is so much prettier than Napa, and as the saying goes in our home town: "Sonoma Makes Wine, Napa Makes Auto Parts."
