This is a real violin that I found in pieces. I had to glue and clamp it back together and mend a gaping hole on the front, applied wood appliques, replaced 3 of the broken pegs by whittling dowels and drilled hole to feed the string through. I embellished with plaster dipped roses, the forementioned wood appliques .. vintage cherubs, and painted with a combo of General Finishes Antique White, Annie Sloan Old white,  General Finishes pearlized Bronze for depth and sealed with General Finishes Flat Out Flat, final embellishments such as pearls and some rhinestones were added for the final touch. The bow was embellished with some ripped canvas, rhinestones and pearls
