At first I just painted it a bronze with a slight black wash on it and called it a day.
But the orangey colour of the bronze and the stark white shades were bugging me. Solution? More black!
I probably need to stipple a bit of brown or bronze back on but we are getting somewhere. Next I needed to deal with the shades.
I took some of the twine on the left and wrapped it around them.
I'm quite liking this look.
Wait, not so fast.. I turned the lights on.
LOL.. there is no light!.. Epic Fail.. Oh well, I have a back up plan so back to the drawing board. :)
