Liberace would have loved this candle sconce.
Even though he would have had to nail it to the side of his piano.
Worn it around his neck as a lighted pendant.
You have seen the middle of this project. Read Blue In The Middle here.
Now for the beginning and the end.
Just a gold painted iron candle sconce.
The middle after a heavy coat of blue gloopy paint.
I found this vintage blue and gold sparkly trim in Horror Monster, my beloved and now slightly tamed craft stash.
I have been waiting for the right project for this beauty.
Before adding the trim, I decided the sconce could use a bit more texture.
Mixed up a gold paint.
Made it extra-thick.
Layered it over the blue.
Then mixed a silvery blue close to the first blue and slathered it on.
Like spreading butter.
It dries pretty quick.
I polished it a little with a rough paper towel.
I used double-sided tape to attach the sparkles.
The texture and all the layers of paint are perfect companions for the trim.
It looks great on my dining room wall, but I do not think I am going to keep it.
That wall has to have something larger to fill the space.
Yes, those are fake LED candles from the dollar store.
One last look, Liberace wanna-be's.
This sconce has it.
I did love watching Liberace in his costumes perform in my teen years.
Though I would have NEVER admitted that to anyone!
I would have had to turn in my faded, torn bell-bottoms with the peace sign on the behind and my bandanna top.
