While the patch job was drying, I moved on to the ceiling. I had decided before I left for Camp to do a faux tin ceiling. I started with a Houseworks faux ceiling panel and painted a first coat of Gesso. Once dry I painted the entire ceiling with a metallic gold acrylic paint.
Then I sponged on a coat of metallic copper acrylic paint.
Then I sponged on a coat of metallic silver acrylic paint.
Then a coat of bronze metallic acrylic paint.
Final coat was a product called Extreme Glitter, which was a silver paint that had gold glitter in it. This gave the ceiling a little more sparkle to reflect the lighting that will be in the room. Two very subtle and doesn't show clearly in the pictures, but I think it will help the lighting on the room.
Here are the paints I used.
In the morning I have to pack up to return home. I'll have a little bit of catching up to do on my studies, so I'll try to post tomorrow, but it may be later in the week before I can get more updates for you to see.
We had another tidbit exchange and giftie exchange again today, and I received a beautiful aquarium on a table, plus many more accessory items. More pictures to follow on later in the week.
Several vendors and artisans had tables set up selling their products during the week as well. I've added a few more items to my collection and I'll review that during the coming week.
I'm totally exhausted, but proud of what I've accomplished. It's been a wonderful week with a great group of friends, both old and new.
Until the next time....
