Helping With Fiona's Tiles

Like many people in the group I helped with some of tiles for Fiona's Russian fireplace.

The tiles had been painted in Covent Garden Primer and two coats of White emulsion paint, when dry I drew around fionas acetate stencils of the petals which were placed in each corner of the tile then around a seperate stencil which included all the circular decoration which was then put is in the centre of each tile. Once drawn I then traced one of three designs: A cat, rabbit, harpie while fiona done the picture of the flowers by eye.

This job was simple, stencilling was easier than painting as painted took more time, patience and had to be done correctly however I was happy to help fiona and the rest of the group who were also helping to finish off the tiles.
