At last I have finished this little chest of drawers, which got thrown in a corner after I had gessoed it, as the wood of the drawers refused to fit! I finally took the sandpaper to the drawers and applied some glide stuff that I had (from Lakeland).
The whole thing was painted with Pebeo Black acrylic and then I used versamark and Sheena Douglass's corner orchid stamp and heat embossed it with some burgundy powder. I the painted the image with variious Pebeo DYNA iridescent paints to reflect the colours I used on the drawer fronts.
I couldn't decide what colour to paint the drawers - so ended up painting them in both colour ways that I liked.
Prior to applying the black gesso I applied some redundant peel-offs for the little detail on the drawers.
Again using the Pebeo DYNA iridescent acrylics, sponged on with a bit of kitchen scourer. Colours used are: Blue/Green, Green/Blue, Yellow/Green, and Precious Gold. For the red drawer: Red/Blue, Orange/Yellow, Bronze and Precious Gold.
The knobs were done with Pebeo Gilding wax.
