I couldn't get out of my comfort zone TOO much with this one, so I ended up letting loose with the brush with her collar, touched up the nose, the birds beak and added red to the lips. Just need to leave it for a month or so and let it thoroughly dry before putting resin on it. Then fix the hinges, and it's DONE. I love the gold leaf paint effect, makes the wood look carved and has a Gothic Gilded Icon feel about it. I have done this before with the Marmite Shrine in my dining room.
Thanks to KAOS Queen Karen Russell I now have Marmite Gold sitting on the shelf.
