Before, a mass market print.
In this case, it was going to be a pain to remove it from the frame, so I just taped the frame off with blue tape. Be sure it's adhered well so that no paint leaks underneath. In this case, paint did leak underneath, so I just painted the linen liner in a linen color paint to hide the stains. It looked fine.
The middle stages, with soft layers of latex house paint, acrylic craft paints, and gouache. It's okay to mix different types of paint as long as they have the same base: in this case, even though the types are slightly different, they're all water based.
In place. I love mixing contemporary art with traditional frames and interiors and vise versa. Even if you don't think you have artistic talent, you could get a similar effect by using a solid color covered with a tinted polyureathane, or mix layers of different tones of the same color.
