More Paint, More Depth

A couple of weeks ago, I posted photos of the first pieces that I painted. I left the fabric to dry overnight and didn't realize that it would continue to change until the fabric was dry. Was I ever in for a surprise the next morning! Both pieces were very pastel, the salt had sucked a lot of color out and our tables were uneven, so a lot of color slid off. Live and learn! They were nice, but I knew they could be better. So, I decided to add a second layer of paint and here are the progress shots. I paint in my dining room now, so the dry time is much shorter and my tables are even!The colors are so rich and they have so much depth now. I feel like they are finally finished.
