Olly's mirror

This is one of the Christmas presents l made this year, for my grandson, Oliver.....
This started out as a white mirror, l then black Gesso'd it after gluing several pieces all over with embossed card, like patchwork really. I then chose the blue gilding wax plus some silver to bring out the pattern. The next thing was to place and glue the cogs, cars, key etc. also waxed these. I have made several of these now, including, l each for my grand-daughters (twins) now at Uni...and also one for my other grand-son and his girlfriend who are moving into their home.
I do hope you have enjoyed visiting my blog, please leave comments....Thank you.
