See the missing part?
I set to work on replacing that broken piece using clay and plaster.
I just assumed the missing part on the left was the same as the in tact part on the right so I stuck some clay over it to make a mold.
I took it out of the mold and glued it on using E6000.
I painted 3 layers (all from Maison Blanche PaintCo) as follows:
1. La Craie in Magnolia
2. dark wax by Maison Blanche Paint Co
3. Dry brushed La Craie in Magnolia over the dark wax.
Can you tell it was ever broken?
I love the aged effect the wax and the dry brushing creates.
Next time you have a missing or broken piece, don't trash the piece, instead replace the broken part. Use this same plaster and clay technique to create your own furniture appliques.
