I hate making all those final, detailed finishing decisions. First of all, it means the piece is done and you don’t get to play with it any more. That means there are no more “what ifs” and whatever is decided is IT. Then you actually have to MAKE the decisions, stick with them and carry them out. No changing in the middle–that never works.
I’m trying to finish up a few sample pieces today and still have questions about those pesky final details!
This one is done and is definitely going in a frame. What’s the question? Should I leave the frame wooden or paint it? And if I paint it, what color should it be?
Pretty much the same questions for this one, but I haven’t totally decided if it should be in a frame–or maybe not this frame. And then, should it have a white or black background? Should any frame be gray, black or red? Details, details, details! Bleh!
I did manage to finish one piece (that I can’t show you!) and managed to make all the final decisions without a lot of mental discussion. I wonder why some pieces are like that…
