Found a little time to antique the plated Idol head for IJ.
That was tougher than I anticipated because the type of finish you would use to “wash” it didn’t stick so I had to do it by hand with much more robust and less forgiving paint.
Did it with the wash method first. CCACC42F-DAD4-40F2-9495-873E9688A9B7 (resized).jpeg
Just didn’t stick
Went with a lacquer based brown just to test the waters because it accents but if mistakes are made or it doesn’t work it is more forgiving
After I confirmed it would stick and the owner preferred black it was a go. Pretty close to the original all things considered.
