Hello Internet;

As my new carpenter beings work on the Vardi Puppet House construction, I am left to research painting styles and techniques for the finish of the unit.

The traveler aesthetic is a very distinct one. The bright, floral patterns and even brighter bases will take time, as well as stencils for mirrored images. The units are usually finished with gloss paint and gold leafing when possible.

I won't say I hate the research time in the project. It satisfies the part of my creative brain that wants to be doing anything all the time. I love when each section of creation begins to fall into place and I can see the finish line of the project.
