Today I decided to share with you some of my work in "backstage" I hope you like it, some of the works are originals others inspired in by gone artists but I always like to mention it.
Some of the pieces I´m going to show
Lacquered Chippendale chest of drawers
To decorate this Chippendale chest of drawers I used two techniques, one for lacquering the panels and the drawers - and other of "faux finish" in which I painted over gesso to resemble wood, my "secret" is always the same, too much layers all of them duly worked with sand paper until no traces of brush are seen, too many hours of labour but the final is very rewarding.
The screen was decorated to complement the console, so I choosed the colours to match
Frame and Easel by Maria Armanda
Frame from my friend Maria Armanda, lacquered by me in the techique of décapé with touches of silver leaf, and oil with roses at the biginning
A master piece carved from Maria Armanda in wich I concentrate all my love for miniature painting in order to honour her work. The wood was very carefully painted in several coats of beige with lots of work of sand paper but a very delicate touch because of the fragility of the wood. Then I used tempera to decorate the details.
The finished tray with some of the detail brushes I used
Lacquered Screen with Pillement decoration
Two little chest from Paulo Gomes, the one on the right is already decorated and one table I ordered from David from Iriarte, which is still awaiting to be decorated
