FRAMED PRINT
GALVESTON TRUEHEART BUILDING

Full View - Trueheart


Side View - Trueheart

This is a print of a painting by Pam Heidt. The subject is the Trueheart Building in downtown Galveston, TX.

Galveston is filled with fabulous old buildings, beautiful architecture, and a plethora of historical homes.

I was delighted to find this print at a moving sale.







Close Up - TrueheartThis print had a beautiful detailed border, so I had to cut strips of poster board to create the right size matting. I used the tissue paper technique I discussed in the "Lady with a Parrot" project. The base coat of the matting is a parchment white, and different shades of green paint were dry brushed on to create a dimensional effect.

The frame was painted a linen white and the edges were lightly brushed with an olive green paint.

All of the paints were made by FolkArt except for the linen white.



RESOURCES:


PAINT

The first time I purchased the flat linen white paint was at K-mart. It was part of the Martha Stewart Line. Since then, I have had it mixed at Home Depot. If you let them know the brand, and name of the paint color, they can mix it for you. Lowes will probably do the same thing.


METALLIC PAINTS

FolkArt has a wide variety of metallic paint colors. You can find FolkArt Paint at Wal-Mart and Craft Stores. If you prefer to shop on-line
www.createforless.com has great prices.
