Every now and then you get a job that needs something a bit 'off-the-wall'. :roll:

This is done with a heavy coat of black acrylic gesso, dabbled about with my fingers. Silver on top and rubbed back slightly.
Messy, but good fun.

Lovely job indeed :D :yes:

It feels somehow familiar, both the frame and art, have you do one before for the same customer?

I think the customer saw another frame and wanted one similar. :lol:

Hi Peter,

That's a very impressive finish and as far as I can remember, you have shown something similar before. I was very impressed the first time and I'm still just as impressed this time as well. I think that this is one of your most original ideas and also one of your best. I think this finish can easily be called a classic and with much justification as well.
