Mirror Frame



I bought this frame in a second hand shop and painted it and patterned it with Celtic rubber stamps. My partner has just about persuaded me that i should varnish it too - what do people think?

Ah, the eternal question; to varnish or not to varnish? Personally in this case I think varnish would be a good idea as it will make the frame easier to keep clean... But then the BondBloke is always into labour saving ideas...

I like the idea of adding varnish. I think it would add some depth and sheen to the colors.

I really like your music haikus!

If the varnish will keep it from fading or smearing, that's probably the best bet. It's kind of hard to tell from just a photo, but I think it looks pretty good as is. If it doesn't need protection, I'd just leave it.

Thanks for your comments. Farfetched has summed it up perfectly - I also think it looks fine as it is, but varnish would certainly protect it from dust etc and i think Deb is right about varnish adding sheen and depth. So I'll be buying some varnish when I get back from holidays! I'm glad you liked the music haiku, Deb!
