I painted these old candlesticks of mine. They started life out with a silver plating, then, when they started to look tired I spray painted them red!
They remind me in a way of the beautiful work of Christine Misiak. Her work is a lot more permanent and artistic than a layer of paint. She cleans, restores, repairs and where necessary replaces bits of vintage silver and then adds colour.
She is exhibiting in Newcastle on Tyne until the end of October.
