Painted Ceiling Medallions, Easy DIY painted bronze finish

diy painted medallions bronze finish
I work with a local interior designer occasionally for painted projects 
or makeovers she needs. On this job she needed these 3ft diameter
ceiling medallions painted in a bronze finish.
She contacted me to paint them before they were installed so
my neck was happy about that!

This was a quick project.
I started by spray painting a reddish brown base coast.
When that was dry I applied watered down
black paint and used a brush to get in all the nooks and crannies
then wiped away the excess with a soft cloth.

When all was dry I dry brushed with a muted gold metallic paint.

  1. Lovely! Will you post a photo of them installed?

  2. Wow, such talent! I enjoyed looking at all of your artwork!

  3. Which metallic paint did you use to brush on there? They look amazing.

    1. I'm pretty sure it was a Martha Stewart metallic glaze from home Depot


I've moved to Lucydesignsart.com to focus on my mosaic art. I'm no longer creating dragonflies or mermaids.
