How to paint another new plastic frame to look like an authentic antique

After all these years, I still find infinitely more pleasure from searching markets and attics for possibilities to transform, than looking at real antiques. For one thing, centuries old antiques are generally out of my price range, but mostly, as beautiful as they may be, I see them as reference and research. For me, the challenge does not lie in acquiring antiques, but in creating something from nothing.

And that is pretty much why I bought this little plastic frame without any hesitation. Another "cheap and nasty" from the East begging for a make-over. See how I did this HERE.
