Birds of a Feather

The design on the lid of this small trunk is my interpretation on one done by Samuel Plank in the 19 century. The bottom of the trunk is faux-grained using washes of acrylic paints and an old brush. The line and berry design on the front and sides of this trunk is inspired by the designs which were inlaid on furniture in the 18th century, primarily in Chester County in southeast Pennsylvania. Quaker immigrants from Wales introduced these designs. William du Pont “assembled the most significant collection of line and berry furniture” according to Early American Life magazine. With the purchase of a pattern, you can also purchase the video class on painting this design, including the paint-graining for $7.
