Here I’m cleaning up the edges, adding the fringe back in and doing some doodles around the number on the bottom. I’d forgotten how nice old lead paint is to work with. The colors are so thick.


Now it’s time to make it old. I painted one side with good old orange shellac. It really warms up the whole thing and gives it that tea stained/old smoke look.


Here it is completed. I’m really amazed at how great this looks. I’m going to be doing a lot more painting both on canvas and on my metal work.


The family ready for the stage.
