And so it began. The customer not only wanted it bigger, she also wanted it to be domed. Hum, that got me thinking....what could I use as a base that was round, about 10" across, oven proof, and domed. Think, think, think......I think I'll go to the thrift store and have a look around.
|An old pot lid should do the trick! A few turns of a screw and the handle is off.|
|I was given the color scheme and made a few canes.|
|Next step, covering the entire lid with a pale, off-white and then starting in the center with a design.|
|Nope, not enough negative space. Time for a do over.|
|Nope, wrong shade of green. Try again.|
|A few more changes.|
After about 3 weeks, many e-mails back and forth and lots of changes I was able to create something that both the customer and I were happy with. I hope it adds an interesting and colorful element to her bathroom wall. Something that will be enjoyed for many years!
