I decided to have another try at the Farm Sink. I used cut Balsa wood, Gesso, Acrylic Paint, and last I'll use the dura Clear Gloss Varnish (which I haven't done the varnish yet).
I am so thrilled with the way the sink came out and especially the faucet. I made the faucet from polymer clay, wire, wood dowels, and toothpicks that I have painted a metallic bronze. I just love it. I decided to repaint the hardware on the cabinets to match the faucet.
I hope my sink comes out as shiny as one of the links that were posted for me.
if anyone wants more detailed instructions, please feel free to ask.
thanks for all of the help this community has offered.
