Okay, so i got this frame with this GREAT detailing on it. I didn't want to paint it and mask the detailing, so this is what i did instead:



i painted it light pink first, then did a black paint/water wash (put the paint on, wiped it off). The black paint makes the detailing stand out. Then i topped it off with a coat of clear spray paint.
