Just a note: I did not mention in the instructions, but I did let everything dry between steps.
Cheap wooden frame – wide frames give you more room to work.
Wooden appliqués – available at craft stores
Spray Paint – Black with Satin finish
Spray paint – Metallic, I am using Copper here but I think silver or bronze would also look good
Old rag or sock for applying paint
Joint compound (if needed)
Step 1: Step 1
I played with a few different layouts of the appliqués just to see what I liked.
