Dixie

IMG_5949Dixie was found at, where else but the Dixie Mall in Mississauga Ontario along with her sister Trixie.  Spotted by the Mayor, she was really tired, sad looking and in dire need of a major face lift.  You could almost hear her cry out for help.  I was really anxious to give her some colour and brighten her up since she was so dark and faded.  Sorry I forgot to take before pictures.

Dixie was first painted with 2 coats of ASCP Aubusson Blue then a wash of ASCP French Linen was applied and blotted.  Next to follow, ASCP Louis Blue and Antique White blending as I was going along.  Topped with AS clear wax to seal the paint.  She really looks lovely and is anxiously awaiting for a new home.

Trixie is awaiting her transformation which I hope to get to after another project.
