Heads Up Horatio Hornblower An Original Shabby Chic Idea
I started out with an 1 inch paint brush for the first coat but really found it to be to big for the tight spots and unable to really hit those curves well. I switched over to a much smaller artist brush and while it took more time it really did improve the coverage. So armed with my little brush I set about getting that pretty turquoise on that horn. After 2 coats of paint I went on the waxing, which I must say was tricking. Did I mention all the twists, turns and curves? How about those tight spots? Did I mention those? Sometimes my dreams just make things seem easier after all it's a dream :) As odd as it was to dream of horn painting and the amount of eyebrows raised in my direction as I tried to explain what I was planning to do, I have to say this HORN is so stinking adorable. Check out the pic's and let me know what you think? If I find more horns what colors would you like to see? And as always share your ideas. I look forward to reading the comments.
