When I was finally finished working on this frame, I cured it and saw that it was dull and flat looking. After it cooled I decided to brighten it up a bit with some acrylic paint. I painted the bricks and some of the leaves and then added touches of gold leaf. It is like night and day! The painting took forever but I am so glad it turned out so well. I was really discouraged at first.
