Welcome to Diamond K Folk Art! This set is made and painted in the early 19th century style of art commonly referred to as’School Girl Art’. I have always admired the early 1800’s painted sewing boxes and tables, and made this set for those of you, like me, who like to have pretty sewing tools in your work box! This method of decoration takes extra time and patience the design is first drawn on freehand with an antique dip pen and India ink, then is painted in watercolours in several coats. A final coat of varnish seals all the varnish I use is both archival and non yellowing, so your pieces will stay looking fresh and pretty! To date, this palette set is my absolute favorite! Last year a customer asked me to design and paint a slate frame after a 17th c inspired Flemish embroidery that I worked it came out so beautiful I wanted to make a palette set based on same embroidery style and I have to say Oh My Golly! Did it ever come out wonderful! What makes it even more special, is that I have overpainted the design in real 22k gold its hard to get a picture of it, but when you tilt the pieces ever so slightly, they just really sparkles & dance! This set is ultra feminine and soooo 17th c I love love love it! Its a fabulous NEW shape too for those of you who like larger palettes, this one is 8″ long and just under 2.5″ wide, with 24 holes for threads, numbered on the back of the palette so you can note on your pattern what number holds what color thread if you like. The three thread winder designs have all been taken from different 17th c Flemish cabinet door designs the tree & serpent are common features aside the mirror in the cabinet lids, and the other two florals are derivatives of my larger palette design. Do see the pictures above and let me know if you have any questions. I REALLY love how this set came out and hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
