The stool no 1.

I don't have the photo of the stool before aging it, so you have to imagine the white and black simple clean stool.;) Again it is a DHE purchase. I have to admit I had a problem with the white part of the stool and am not really pleased with it. I didn't know how to make it older without staining it with the tea.:) Decided to paint it here and there with light grey and accomplished this stage.

Still am not really happy about it.:( The legs are again treated with sienna and grey acrylic paints. The stool is dressed up with Laraine's great newspapers - I still feel guilty gluing them together and putting them somewhere under anything...LOL - and with the students' exercise books - as this was the moment I completely forgot (while making books like crazy some time ago) the Hogwarts students use parchment scrolls to do their homework! ;) Anyway here is the final stage of the stool no 1.


Taboret nr 1 nie był łatwy do postarzenia i szczerze pisząc wciąż nie jestem zadowolona z efektu końcowego. Zupełnie nie wiedziałam jak się zabrać za białą częsć taboretu, a nie chcialam używać herbacianej esencji, bo nie o plamy mi chodziło. W końcu zdecydowałam się pomalować fragmenty jasnoszarą farbą akrylową - efekt widać na pierwszej fotografii. Nogi zostały potraktowane sienną i tym samym jasnoszarym kolorem. Na taborecie znalazły się cudnej urody gazety od Laraine - wciąż mam wyrzuty sumienia sklelając je razem czy układając je pod spodem innych rzeczy :P - i zeszyty uczniów Hogwartu, które "popełniłam" ongis, w ferworze tworzenia mini książek i zeszytów, zupelnie zapominając, że piszą oni swoje prace domowe na zwojach pergaminu, a nie w zeszytach...;)

I know how it feels, guilty. Perhaps you remember the beautiful white cane chair in my witch's house that is now brown and old looking? But remember, it's the end result that counts and you did a great job with the stool and the pile of papers and books on top!

I love your stool, its brilliant! The books are fab too.
I dont know how to age furniture in these colours, but for my own furniture i stain with acrylic paints, then wipe most if it off while still wet. Sometimes i go over this with a coloured beeswax. Its a raw umber beeswax.
