Well I fell in love with turquoise when I was born it is consider by some accounts Capricorns Birthstone but when I started seeing it all over the place last fall in fashion and decor and pinterest my love affair was reignited.
Well I am all about the re-do re-new re-use re-paint gig when it comes to my home. Have been for years because I have things I adore and am attached to but like to update somewhat from time to time.
So some cherubs got updated with a bit of paint and I thought someone out there might like to apply this to their project.
My cherubs looked like the one below cream and antiqued. The foo dogs at the end of the post were grey with black bases from Home Goods and got base coated with Kilz
I painted the cherubs with a dark turquoise craft paint
after they dried I applied antiquing medium and wiped off with a cloth rag
Then I dry brushed a very light aqua on the high points to give the antiquing depth and the cherubs more dimension
I forgot to take a picture of this step but I dry brushed white over the aqua marine creating the look on the right
Then to bling them out- a girl can never have to much bling lol I dry brushed this metalic emerald green on next creating the finished look on the left
The same technique was done to these foo dogs
