I have a wonderful friend that has a home in Long Island, New York. I mentioned that I liked the rocks from the movie Something’s Gotta Give where Diane Keaton collects the white rocks off the beach, but never the black ones. I loved the look of the rocks so she sent me some. I had a little frame looking shadow box that would work perfectly to display my treasure. It was dark wood so I painted it cream and then used a dry brush with burnt umber acrylic paint on the edges instead of sanding for a distressed look and I glazed it. I also glazed the pot next to it for an antique look. I used my favorite Folkart Plaid antiquing polish. I found where it can be ordered if anyone is interested. You can order it here:
I also tried to apply my new skills I learned at Donna’s Funky Junk Interiors
She is doing a series on how to take better photos. The first lesson was to keep your camera still. So here are my photos of my rocks while staying rock solid still. I hope you enjoy.
Aren’t these rocks so pretty? I love them. She threw in a couple of black ones!
Here is a close up of the dry brushing with acrylic paint on the edges.
I think the photos look better. I can’t wait to learn more. This is shades of white that I think I got right. I am thinking of tackling a paint job on my potting bench in honor of spring.
Thanks for looking.
