2018 Home Project no. 5...Brightening up Three Scroll Frames

So far 2018 has been a very busy year. I am still trying to finish many home projects for this year since I am going to have rotator cuff surgery on the 23ed of February. After surgery, I will be convalescing for 10 weeks. Even though my shoulder hurts a lot it hasn't kept me from doing everything I need to do.  

Here are 3 resin scroll frames I picked up about 5 years ago at a garage sale and I paid $3.00 for all three of them. Through time they had lost its shine, so I brightened them up with silver and gold leaf. Check out how they turned out.

Before they were dark and with no shine.

The process, using a rag I dabbed some silver leaf all around the frames and then I dabbed the gold leaf over them.

Now the frame looks great.

Lovely results.

The after results. 

 Total cost: zero dollars. I already had the paints.
