What I Used:
The How To:
You can see that a bit of the white had dripped and dried on the bottom. That was not a problem. Since I was trying to imitate stone it did not have to be perfect like in this lamp project I did a while back.
Of course it is much easier if you just buy the colors but I am on a quest to use up my paints so I like to mix them myself.
Towards the end I used the dry brush technique which basically means you put very little paint on the brush and before adding it to the lamp you dab off some of the paint on a paper towel or palette so as to just have a tiny bit of paint that goes onto your object.
I took it inside my girls’ room to photograph it because the lighting is better in there, but quickly realized they better not see it otherwise they’ll want to keep it.
Which do you prefer the gold or the new stone look?
