This little slice of sunshine and happiness is probably one of my most favorite pieces.

The paint colors are so rich and bright! Such a free spirit feel!

    Thank you Crysdawna for the tip on using hot glue to create your molds. I’m not patient enough to wait for the clay to dry so I thought this technique would out for me. But you came to my rescue and now I have about 50 glue gun molds made but not a project in mind to use them on lol. But that’s the mind of a creative…let me have what I need ready even if I don’t ever remember that I need it. 🤦🏽‍♀️🤣.

    So the gorilla glue hot glue sticks and is durable ? It seems counter intuitive that hot glue and wood are a permanent bond. Just asking. Thanks

    1. Dixie Belle Paint Company says:

      Hi Kathleen, yes the method Crys’Dawna used is durable! Happy painting! 🙂

WE see you! :)

Thank you Debbie! You've inspired us to create more mirrors! We love the techniques you demonstrated tonight!

I'm gonna age myself here, but I LOVE drybrushing, been doing it since the years of ceramics! Always thought it would be great for furniture, decorative items, etc.

Thank you so much for showing us how you do mirrors!

I love it 😊

Have a blessed weekend

I bought one 2 weeks ago at a yard sale. It is beautiful. I can't wait to paint if after I finish what I'm working on now. Maybe I will get some good ideas now on what to do

Will definitely start following you!

I bet some in the navy would look good added to all the high points after you are done with that blue!! Such a beautiful color you made!!

Those scrolling leaves are called acanthus leaves. They are so classic and are gorgeous with your dry brushing! ❤️

Those details are absolutely stunning !!!!!!!!

I just mixed Manatee Gray with Dixie Belle Blue on my buffet this week. Love making new colors <3

Definitely works great on carvings! Love

Hi, first time watching. From Florida.

I love how the dry brushing is highlighting the scroll work.

I have a lot of mirrors like this!! This is my favorite style!

I continue to learn and appreciate all the knowledge. Thank you
