more changes


I have some frames in my house that are very gold,almost brassy.
I am so over that look.

After repainting my fireplace bookcases and surround,
I wanted to tone down the frames in the room with this:


I love this product!
I have successfully used this on other frames in my house.


The consistency is creamy and goes on smoothly with a soft cloth.


I taped off the glass for easy clean-up.  You can see the difference.
Wait about an hour and softly buff.


No more brass, just a soft silvery gold.


I've had this print for years.  Now it's updated & lovely!

  3. I really like this new look over the gold.. A super idea Carol.
    I would love to know the name of it. I might just try it on a couple of my gold frames.

  4. I don't think I've every used that type of product before on frames. I have used something similar in other types of work but I don't usually colour my frames. Perhaps this is worth a try. You got good results with it and it has a soft metallic look to it. Definitely worth a trip to the art supply store.
