So here she is, minus her hardware ( I always forget to take the initial picture before I start dismantling!)
She had some really rough spots on the top edge and built up goop, but I loved her lines and dainty feet. She had sort of a french feel to me so I named her Gorgette. I knew I wanted to use at least two colors and that the primary color should be what I call Louis Blue. So I started blocking in the colors.
Please don't judge my photography. I know it sucks but I'm working on it. Sort of. Honestly, I just keep hoping that suddenly my photos will just improve but it ain't happening. Anyway, Pure White did not agree with Gorgette...it just seemed too stark, so I went with Old Ochre instead. Muuuuccchhh betttteerrr.
I roughed her up a little, gave her a coat of clear wax then dark and then finished up with a final coat of clear. Her bling (also known as hardware) went back on and she was ready for her close up. I really think she's transformed and although I never got to see her with her top on.....I hear she's a beauty.
That'll do Gorgette, that'll do.
