Next, she painted it with 2 coats of IndigoBlu Gee-So Good in black. Once dry MJ added a mixture of Maimeri Bronze (475) and Deep Gold (151) paint. Again once dry she used Pebeo Gilding wax in Empire Gold.
Not entirely happy with the colour, and after welcomed advice from the wonderful Eileen Godwin, more black gesso was dry brushed onto the background areas. This added shade and made it stand out more.
