A friend had asked me to make some centerpieces for her beach wedding. Happily I agreed. On the round glass bowl, in the back, you will notice a gold background. I was going for a 'coral' effect. I found a cool looking placemat at Walmart, and used that as a template. I cut it up to fit the outside back and sides. I then sprayed the Rustoleum American Accents Bright Gold over the template .
You can see in pics how I did the back and sides. I then put in some sand and shells...If you notice I even painted a couple of the shells with the gold. I love this!
