I love working in 1:12 scale and this is a perfect piece for the WIP doll's house I have been slowly working on for about a year. The beautiful and graceful scroll work on this piece inspired me to enhance the already lovely shape and add pretty gold details.
I chose one and dry fit it into the hole, then drew a circle around it to mark where the edges were on the circle.
Here is what the completed gold paint looks like.
Quinac Gold is a semi translucent acrylic paint that I use a lot either by itself or with a little black to give the appearance of age or grime to a piece. (this is a variation on something I learned from the amazing and very funny Michael deMeng)
It goes without saying that you want your detail painting to be completely dry before you do this!
And with some fun goodies displayed on it...
