Faux Wedgwood Jasperware Lamp...A Tutorial

  Hello friends...so happy to have you visit again. 
I would like to thank everyone for their encouragement and well wishes regarding my shop in
So to keep you informed of any new additions to my shop, I would like  to offer this little tutorial.
I found this table lamp in a local thrift shop today.
It is made of some kind of resin/metal material??
It had a good weight to it and was in perfect condition.
I loved the fern relief design..but not the color.

The design reminded me of Wedgwood Jasperware, which can be quite costly.
How would I achieve the same look you are wondering?
You guessed it...
A.S. Chalk Paint!
I applied a coat of Duck Egg Blue in a way that still left tiny bits of the base visible.
Of course I taped off the cord and the bulb base to protect them.
I dry brushed with a little Versailles, which is a gorgeous grey/green.
Just enough to give the relief some depth.
On top of that I dry brushed some Old White only on the raised part of the design.
Yes...I am painting on my glass cook top. 
I know...I'm a bad girl.
Sometimes a gal just has to paint where she is standing at the moment!
Now I  applied a coat of clear wax and once dried, I buffed it to a nice sheen.
And there you have it
Faux Wedgewood Jasperware
Same treatment on the pretty finial.
I think she turned out lovely.
You gotta love thrift shops!
My pretty lamp will be offered for sale in my shop at Fox Den.
That is if I can pry it from Mr. Secret Agents hands. He thinks I should keep it...he is going to have to get over that way of thinking real fast!
Just ask Miss Mustard Seed about getting attached to your painted projects.

Until next time...be kind and stay creative.

Atelier Conti said...

I really love this Janet! I wish I could get my hands on some of that chalk paint! I guess I'd be painting everything in my path...fabulous. No wonder hubby is loath to let it go...

Kathleen Grace said...

That is just amazing Janet, it really does resemble the Jasperware and it is just gorgoeus!

I think I'm going to have to break down and get some of that paint! The lamp turned out beautifully. I just love Wedgewood. When we lived in Germany I was able to get a bell and ring holder and I still love them 20 years later!

Very very nice!!!

Tweed Delights said...

That is really pretty! I feel a little sorry for 'Mr Secret Agent' though :/ Send him my commisserations, poor deprived soul, hehe!

McKenzie said...

Wow! I never would have thought that lamp that kind of potential. Love that you didn't just spray it a flat color too! Way to go!

Farmer's Wyfe said...

This looks FANTASTIC!!! What a great idea!!! I love chalk paint too!! So much potential with it. I'm your newest follower and look forward to checking out your blog. :)

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

That looks so much better. Love the color. I was thinking about trying Versailles chalk paint. I thought it was more of a yellow green, but you said grey. Thanks for joining WUW.

Jenn @ Frugal Upstate said...

The end result on your lamp is just beautiful! Of course now I'll be looking for something like that and never ever find one at the thrift store. . .

The other matter is that whenever a problem develops with a pc
motherboard, folks should not take the risk associated with repairing this themselves for if it
is not done properly it can lead to irreparable damage to an
entire laptop. Most commonly it is safe to approach the
dealer of that laptop with the repair of its motherboard.
They have technicians who may have an expertise in dealing with notebook computer motherboard difficulties and
can make the right diagnosis and accomplish repairs.

I have realized that over the course of building
a relationship with real estate owners, you'll be able to get them to understand that, in each and every real estate purchase, a fee is paid. In the end, FSBO sellers will not "save" the payment. Rather, they fight to earn the commission through doing a great agent's work.
In completing this task, they invest their money
in addition to time to perform, as best they're able to, the tasks of an real estate agent. Those responsibilities include uncovering the home by means of marketing, showing the home to all buyers, constructing a sense of buyer desperation in order to make prompt an offer, booking home inspections, controlling qualification inspections with the mortgage lender, supervising repairs, and aiding the closing of the deal.

I have figured out some new things from your site about pc's. Another thing I have always thought is that computer systems have become a product that each house must have for several reasons. They supply you with convenient ways in which to organize the home, pay bills, go shopping, study, listen to music and in many cases watch tv shows. An innovative olution to complete all of these tasks is a notebook. These computer systems are mobile, small, powerful and convenient.

Thanks for your posting. I also think laptop computers have grown to
be more and more popular nowadays, and now tend to be the only form of
computer employed in a household. It is because
at the same time that they're becoming more and more cost-effective, their computing power keeps growing to the point where they may be as effective as pc's out of
just a few in years past.
