A Denim Blue

This mirror was probably originally part of a dressing table, or vanity, but on its own I thought it still had interesting lines.  I wanted to paint it a denim blue that looks like old faded blue jeans. I used Graphite for the first coat. Aubusson Blue and Greek Blue each in light layers and also each mixed with Old White. Coco was used for additional shadows and Old White for highlights. Finished with clear wax.

I love your color combinations. You just inspired me to paint an old lamp by using your layering technique. Please keep doing what you are doing!

You have inspired me. I am doing a old door at our cottage. I want it red in the end,but with layers of other colors under….. black white.cream wood tone. How do I achieve this? I was just going to start but don’t have the guts. I know I can do this. Got any ideas?
