Rummage Sale Trade

I found this:

We brought it home with the idea it would go on the GIANT  blank brick wall (chimney) on our patio. The brick is … brownish-pink. Kinda terra-cotta pink? The brown, brownie, brownness of this medallion (?) wasn’t going to contrast enough with the brick, so of course I renewed it. Of course.

These are the results:

One coat of pale yellow followed up with a dry brush coat of peacock blue. Since it will be outside, I coated it a matte acrylic sealer.  I couldn’t wait to share the results, even though we haven’t hung it yet. More to come!
