Tole painting is something I use to do a lot, starting about 18 years ago. I have a scroll saw and use to cut out all of my own wood. I would sand it down smooth and prep it to paint. I made so many things to decorate my home and to give as gifts. I loved the whole process, from start to finish. Slowly I did it less and less, until not at all, mostly because of time and space. But I still love it. When we went on the Quilt Run last weekend, a couple of the quilt shops had tole painted signs out front. Seeing them makes me want to get out my brushes again. But, thinking of all the other things I want to craft stops me. Well, maybe one day...
So, I will just share with you a few of my tole painted projects from the past, please excuse my dust.
