Thought I would share with you a few makeup tips!
As you know, I was a bit bothered by the gaps in my flooring...so I took steps to cover them up! I read about this technique somewhere on the Internet, (sorry, I don't remember where!) and thought it would work for me.
I'll start by showing you the final result! I think it worked for the most part...I still have a bit of cover up to do, but things are looking up!
|Very few gaps visible now!|
Just like in real life...makeup to the rescue! Amazing how much a little "covering up" can do!
I started by plying my wife for her old makeup...She didn't even look askance at me! Scary that she has become so used to my unusual requests.
I used the brown in the photo above...sorry, not sophisticated enough with makeup to tell you what color! (he says while looking nervously around the room). I used a blunt ended paintbrush to push the makeup into the gaps throughout the floor.
The end result is gaps filled with a bit of makeup...they totally disappear, and become a part of the aged effect I will be adding to the floor before I am done.
In the photo above, you can see one of the "gaps" that is still present...it is actually where I scored the copper covered paper accidentally, and the makeup won't cover that...but never fear!! Copper leaf is here! I will touch those up with a bit of copper leaf, and I hope that they will also go away.
