Modeled NOEL

This was inspired by Pottery Barn’s NOEL and the House of Hawthorn’s beautiful Zinc-like 25.

Materials:

Unfinished 18” NOEL from www.unfinishedwoodco.com $17.99

Paintbrushes

Black acrylic paint

Gray acrylic paint

Light Red Oxcide acrylic paint

Lipstick Red acrylic paint

Sandpaper

I began by coating the entire NOEL with black paint.

Then I let it dry and sanded it lightly. I took a brush and lightly dry brushed with gray and Light Red Oxcide (FolkArt). I let dry to the touch.

Finally, I heavily dry brushed with Lipstick Red (FolkArt). I sprayed with Acrylic Sealer to finish.

The entire project took me about 30 minutes.  I am not sure I needed to dry brush with gray as it is not very visible in the finished project.

    I don’t know where I’ve been — I may have seen the “Noel” in other settings but it didn’t register until I saw your project. Love it! And thank you for the tip to Unfinishedwoodco. I had no idea — you have opened up a world of new possibilities :)

  2. Great blog. Cheers for posting
