I bought this chest of drawers about six months and wanted to paint it in Napoleon Blue but after I painted one drawer, the colour didn’t seem to do the piece justice. We’ve just come back from a trip to Morocco and I love Islamic architecture and design so I decided to print out a stencil on my Silhouette Cameo.
It’s painted with a mix of Greek Blue & English Yellow (colour is more green in natural light) and then stenciled with gold acrylic. I started one drawer with a spray paint for the stencil but it would not give me a seamless join, so I reverted back to the trusted brush method. I was very disappointed with Greek Blue when I bought it, so I’m pleased I have now found a use for it!
