Here was a fun little project which allowed me to use a new gadget, and I love those! Especially when they actually work haha. I wanted to use dowel joins only in this quite minimal piece as I like the finish better than caps or putty. I’m aiming to use this technique as much as possible in the future. The orange oil finish made the piece blend in with the floor boards which was unexpected but the customer is happy 😊
Or more accurately a series of murals done throughout the building over the course of a months or so. Cutting the stencils actually took longer than to paint but that’s part of the process. Now I’ve got a series of motifs to use indefinitely or at least until the material breaks down.
I have been painting and decorating the hallway for a few days in preparation for a mural. All of the colours except the yellow were mixed out of the dark brown, it worked particularly well in the stairwell. The images will be created using stencils and the cutting process has definitely been the most labor intensive part of this project.
