In my world of Recreated Treasures, in the ‘small item’ range I have this oval dish. Another recreated piece with pink roses painted onto it. Many people comment that with these kinds of pieces they wouldn’t want to ‘use’ them because they feel it may be too delicate to use – they would use it just for display. The appearance of these recreated works seem to have that dainty, delicate feel to them but the item itself is quite ‘sturdy’ and finished to a high standard of workmanship. The artwork is sealed (including the entire piece) with 4-6 coats of varnish – depending on size & use of item. Once cured, the varnish acts as a tough surface & will withstand a fair bit of handling & normal usage of the item (even a bit of rough handling within reason).
