More Furniture Painting

I am now a regular furniture painter/artist after doing so for the past 7 years, more so in the last 3 years. Here are more pictures of furniture from June's Selayang and Indahreka Cipta, Shah Alam.

People say decorative painting is sedentary work. Well, to a certain extent it is, as most small items can be completed by sitting on a chair in front of a table for hours and hours.

However, for me, painting big items is a challenge as I need to maneuver furniture and balance myself at times. Sometimes I stand while painting or sit and sprawl on the floor, and at times climb a stool or step-ladder for painting tall furniture. As an advice, find the most comfortable position while painting. It does not only ease the painting technique, but also care for our body so as not to have unnecessary muscle/join pains. Happy painting!

Kitchen stuff - now the pot still calling the kettle black?

Make your kitchen more interesting with painted kettles and pot-covers.

Dare to be bold

Try these vibrant and bold colours for a change. Deep red and pink roses goes well on this bright green background. Soften the design by a dash of lavender-coloured filler flowers.
