|Nautical Compass Table|
I primed the table using a brown tinted primer. I used a dark bronze metallic paint as my undercoat. I love the crackled look, so I used crackle medium topped with white crackle paint. Once the paint cracks, the bronze shows in the cracks.
I found a compass image online and printed it large enough to be traced. To see how I trace, you can go to this posting. http://savardstudios.blogspot.com/2012/06/red-and-cream-clockface-table-how-to.html
I began to fill in my colors and outlined everything with a paint pen. To complete my perfect circles, I used a push pin in the middle of the compass with string attached. Once complete. I glazed the entire table with a chocolate glaze to tone it done and give it dimension. Here are some photos of the process.
Since I never have time to paint pieces for myself, this unique table can be found in my Etsy store. http://www.etsy.com/shop/savardstudios?ref=si_shop
