You may remember the little faces tutorial I did about two years back, and I’ve been meaning for all that time to finish the goldwork inside his halo.
Well, I’m working on it right now. It’s my intention to get a few pieces framed and ready to sell, and since this little chap was done for no other purpose than providing a tutorial he might as well find a new home.
However, now I can’t decide-
-should I mount him as he is, on a linen background, or as a slip on velvet?
– and if I put him on velvet, should that velvet be gold, brown, or the more coventional red?
The frame will be natural oak with a wide cream mount, as per the last things I had framed
