I posted earlier about the broken trim molding above the back door, and what I was doing to fix it. Well, today I got it done and I am thrilled with how it turned out!
The transition between the original molding and the arch looks seamless after it's been painted!
I used Super Sculpey to sculpt the center rosette, tree branches, the bird and nest. A half jelly roll pan was the perfect size to sculpt on and then bake the appliques. After they had cooled, I scraped it off with a spatula.
Doing projects like this makes me fall in love with my house all over again. I love the asymmetric design that I came up with, because it feels more organic. And incorporating birds into my design is so me. I loved birds in my decor long before it became popular. So what do you think?
