Here is a picture of one of the naked candlesticks. It is only wearing its undies for this photo. Please forgive its lack of modesty.
Here is the pair. One is wearing only a coat of French Country Grey chalk paint by Annie Sloan and a coat of Clear Wax. The other is wearing the same and a coat of Dark Wax on top.
In this image, some of the Dark Wax has been rubbed off with an old t shirt with some clear wax on it. See how the sculpted bits are highlighted?
Here is the happy pair, all clothed similarly and hanging out where they are going to live from now on, atop a provençal runner purchased in Avignon in 2003, in the dining room. Beeswax candles are from my home town where the honey bee is queen.
Color is lighter than appears on this photo given that there isn't a lot of natural light in the dining room.
