Originally a gold gilded mirror, our client brought this in to have it revived in a more fitting style using colours that worked with her interiors whilst maintaining the vintage character of the mirror. Hand painted in Paris Grey, we then clear and dark waxed the piece. A white wash was then created using Old white and water to create a runny dye like consistency, this was then brushed on and ragged off. Once dry, we further enhanced the piece with an Old white dry brush. The paint finish was then distressed by using a wet rag, maintaining the original gold gilding and allowing hints of it to come through and frame the paint finish. A lovely mirror hand painted and detailed in a way to maintain its character and enhance the detailing.
