Pebeo mirror

Buongiorno :)
Gio is with us today for yet another type of sample made with the beautiful Pebeo paints.

I started to spread the Fantasy prisme red paint with the help of a wooden stick on the upper side of the mirror; when I covered half of the mirror I added drops of white paint and I spread it around to mix with the red.
I poured the white paint on the bottom of the mirror, taking care to mix the two colors with the stick where they met. I add some drops of gold paint now and then, always mixing with the stick.
I set aside to dry overnight. I added some findings and embellishments: you can add them with glue or you can add them when the paint is still wet.
With these colours, you get a wonderful shiny surface, no needed further varnishing.








To make her mirror, Gio used:

but the same technique could be used on any wooden item
