Ideas for updating a gold frame
Lightly brush over the whole frame which will really pick up on that texture and the detail of the frame. Using baby wipes you rub any area that you would like to be gold.
I also dry brushed in Old White to really make the detail stand out and create a more layered paint effect. Unlike sand paper, baby wipes will only take off the paint and not disturb the gold.
You can also lay down plastic or an old sheet under your work area.
Then we covered the glass with newspaper and taped it down with blue painters’ tape.
Step 1: We placed the mirror carefully on two stands in an outside area we didn’t mind getting red spray paint on.
I used the super glue to secure them before adding screws (just makes it a bit easier).
