Paint a gold torso

Resene art with Mark Rayner - Project 98

Difficulty level: Moderate

You will need:

  • Bisqued torso form*
  • Clean damp cloth
  • Paint stirrer, paintbrush

* A bisqued form is porous so we used Resene Terracotta Sealer, but if you are painting a glazed form then prime with Resene Waterborne Smooth Surface Sealer.

To get the look: Mark painted the background wall with Resene SpaceCote Flat tinted to Resene Silver Chalice.

Other ideas: For a copper effect paint the torso with a basecoat of Resene Wild West and two topcoats of Resene Copper Fire.
