This piece was dingy and rather unattractive when I found it. I painted it in a series of white and ivory colors, with a touch of soft French blue.
A distressing treatment brought out the age and gave it a lot more texture.
The base is adorned with antique gilded roses and vintage hand cut small roses, rusted and dyed in light blue.
I used a rust treatment on the crowns to bring out more age and give this piece a much bigger statement.
Finally, I draped the girl and boy in vintage pearl necklaces, and my signature pieces- a heart and key- are tied around the boy's neck.
19" tall with crown, 12" wide, 8" deep, base 3" tall
