Sculpture and Faux Finishes 3

Do you know that moment?
You're working, but aware of an increasing sense of dissatisfaction with the results?
You're indignant. You're doing everything right but you KNOW it isn't going to be right enough.

 What's WRONG?
Time to have a cuppa at the FAR end of the studio and just look at the work.
Then it hits you.... Sherrie York of Brush and Barren might say: "Too flat. It needs more Oomph!"

If these panels were metal, there would be rivets holding the sections together. Time for faux rivets.

These wooden knobs  metal rivets give just the right amount of depth and detail. Back to painting.
