|The wall field section taking shape|
Essentially we are following the Aesthetic Movement ethic. This requires a more elaborate approach that typical stenciling . In our case will have the marbleized wainscot, a multiple bordered mid-range field panel that consists of multiple bands and inset small paintings with 3 different stencil elements, gold leafing/gilding and a large upper wainscot that will feature more color bands (each stenciled differently) and a large frieze.
At this point we are working a on the first panel as one comes to the top of the stairs and it will feature all the decorative elements of the other panels that go down the hallway although each small half round painting will be different. So the first section is where we determine all the color interaction and shades to get it just right.
Next Time? The "clay border" and gets its stencil and the Golden Tan panel gets its stencil design
