Tolehaven Placemat

Yes, I've gone crazy with painting Tolehaven design. This time on six placemats. Painting the same design over and over can be a bit tedious but if you organized your work properly, you can finished it quite quickly. Example, paint all the leaves together, and then the flowers. By doing these you don't have to wash your brush often. Also doing this project can get off your mind from thinking about food.

If you are thinking about painting placemats for usage, make sure that you sealed the wood properly and ensure that you varnished at least 3 layers. As you know, Malaysian food are often very messy. So you need to wipe the placemat with damp cloth after usage.
