Some ideas you can use Mona Lisa For some delicious lemony flavours to liven up your project!

  • I love Mona Lisa's Golden Yellowy chalky finish as a contrast to the natural feel of wood. It gives you a mix of bold and reflects your inner personality. It is also has natural bold contrasting colours such as Familia Medici Red,, Fra Fillippo Blue,Tintoretto Black and Pieta maroon.
  • While you may have traditional colours such as Sando Bottocelli,Giorgione or Fra Angelico selectively using Mona lisa on ornaments such as picture frames can make a wall pop!. 
  • Paint your furniture with Mona Lisa and Tintoretto (Black) and using a piece of 220-320 grit sandpaper distress back colour to timber to create a shabby chic effect.
  • Thin Mona Lisa down 2 parts roma wash to one part paint , apply to bare wood with grain (direction) and wipe off with damp sponge or rag to achieve a soft was effect with the grain coming through.
Once finished for protection you could:
  • apply a coat of clear soft wax to leave a smooth satin finish
  • wipe a coat of coat of Eco-Wax liquid carnauba for a harder finish with a slightly buff colour for aging
  • apply a clear soft wax and once dry apply a dark soft wax for an antique look
  • For a hardwearing finish such as a table top then we recommend Glaze & Medium for a satin clear finish
  • For dark colours you could use liming or white wax to soften paint colour
  • Leave Au natural as a matt finish

 Historians agree that Leonardo commenced the painting of Mona Lisa in 1503, working on it for approximately four years and keeping it himself for some years after. Supposedly this was because Mona Lisa was Leonardo's favourite painting and he was loathe to part with it, however it may also have been because the painting was unfinished. Whatever the reason, much later it was sold to the King of France for four thousand gold crowns. The world has talked about it ever since. After the revolution in France the painting was transferred to the Louvre. Napoleon took possession of it using the panel to decorate his bedroom. Upon his banishment from France Mona Lisa once more returned to the care of the Louvre. What is certain is that the painting was never passed onto the rightful owner, that being the man who originally commissioned and presumably paid for it. .
