Ian’s Mirror

What a fun project this was…. taking an old window and making this!

I did not work on this alone, helping a work mate to make this for her husbands birthday. I cut the stencil out of vinyl and placed it on the the old window, showing her how to use the etching cream. Once the etching was done I added the leafy pattern around the edge using a stamp from Inkylicious called Delicate Vines and Grandma’s Teacup Acrylic paint from Indigo Blu. Once she was happy with how it looked I went to work on the frame. I didn’t want to hide the “Vintage” look of it so added some brown emulsion paint and some watered down Buff It in Copper from Pinflair, just to add a little sparkle. We worked on it at luchtimes and after work and it did take quite a few days , but she was so pleased with it as was her hubby.

He’s putting it up in his man cave and is going to add some lights to it.
