Okay, so I've been working on this project to paint up many, many feet of crown molding with cool medieval heraldric shields. There were hundreds and hundreds of shields, each requiring a painted base pattern and then ornamentation using paint, sharpie markers, and decals. This afternoon I sprayed on the final sealing finish. The painting is now finally (OMG finally) complete. Now I just have to rent a nailgun somewhere and put it up without damaging it. I am a bit worried that it might not reach all the way around the room now. I had to remove some ends due to rough cuts or cuts which went through a shield. I also had to get rid of a couple ends which suffered water damage from some flooding in the basement. But I'm already thinking of adding in some sort of focal point feature, like a larger single shield, which would serve to fill in where the gap is.
But anyway, here's a look at some of the final product drying outside in Saturday's very nice weather:
