Art Deco Design
Art deco was a radical designs movement after the art nouveau movement of the late Victorian period into the early 20th centure. Art deco features smooth lines and industrial shapes. Also, new materials, like stainless steel, were incorporated into art deco design. A perfect example is the Chrysler town in New York City.
The sculptural quality of these candle sconces is notable with the curves and hemispherical accents. The decorative accents are painted with the awesome silver spray paint I recently featured in a post.
Black is Nice Contrast to the Silver Finish
To really make the glossy silver paint stand out, I chose a glossy black oil based enamel. I do use acrylic paint on metal but oil based enamel is the best. Many times, a couple coats of oil based enamel is all that is needed. These are fairly popular and easy to make so I make these to order. Just check out the listing on my Etsy shop.
