Wicker Repair Complete or Wife to the Rescue!

Here is the follow up to the wicker repair project...



Leg installed





Base coat of paint



Final inpainting with shellac and earth pigments





Replacing broken spokes on front apron





Spokes for corner in place



After much befuddlement, wife to the rescue!



She saved the day for sure



NGR dyes seen deep in crevices



Base paint with pigmented shellac beginning around corner



Complete!





Hope you enjoyed this glimpse into my work.
