Here is part 2 of the project my daughter and I did this week. In part 1 we created pretty pictures of poppies with crayons and paint. Now I'll show you the process for the frame.
I bought pre cut picture mat boards but you can easily cut your own. With a pencil lightly draw your pattern on the frame. Use white school glue to go over all your lines. Let dry over night.
Once completely dry, paint over the whole frame. We used metallic gold paint. Let dry.
When the paint is dry apply black show polish with a soft cloth. Be fairly liberal with the polish so it sticks into the edges and grooves in the dried glue. Wipe away any excess but don't wipe too much, you want some of the black to stay behind to create that antique look.
Aren't they great?
