I was hesitant to do this folding screen when my client changed her mind about the concept last minute, calling me to tell me she wanted a lion and a tiger on the screen. The original screen proposed had more of a Fall Foliage theme going, without animals. After poring over images and ideas, I finally felt comfortable with the compromise I came up with.
This folding screen is made differently from the previous two I have done. The doors are solid wood panels, bi-fold doors that you would use for a closet. They are much narrower and I found the panels limiting to the design… at first. Here you see them base coated.
I taped out the base coat and added a metallic orange glaze to the top and bottom portions of the panels. Next, I added the Small Moorish Trellis stencil design over the glazed areas.
