Remember before? Well, I started painting yesterday.

I admit it’s a bit of a vicious china red, but I think it’ll work once the rest of the colors come into play.

2015-05-10 16.52.52I’m considering highlighting some details with gold, but that would disturb the kintsugi feel, so maybe not. Perhaps settling for white details is fine after all, though gold would cut both the red and the blue quite wonderfully. (only red paint has been applied so far)

2015-05-10 19.34.12Once I’ve finished painting, I’ll give it another round of oil, to compensate for that which was sanded away, and I think that’ll mute everything a little as well – the wood is so pale now that it’s bare.
