Another Lampshade Gets a Makeover 


A while back I updated the lampshade in my studio with acrylic ink. I was going for an Under the Sea theme. It didn’t quite turn out the way I envisioned, but I stuck with it.

Well I decided it was time to give it a new makeover, this time something floral.

So I began with some paint.


I just grabbed a brush and painted loose flower and leaf shapes on the shade.


Then I filled in around the edges with black gesso.



Once it was dry I drew outlines and details with a gold paint pen.


It has a slightly Asian feel to it I think. I love it! Much more successful than the first time around!!!
