Large Enamel Tray

I remember during those days when I used to visit my late grandmother, she always have this large enamel tray to served drinks, etc. Some one had asked to make this tray more contemporary by painting roses on it. I would have just retained the authenticity of this tray and keep it as an antique. Nevertheless, following her request I have based it with gesso and then paint the green colour of her choice as the background. I have to paint many layers just to cover totally the original colour of the design. The roses are painted in pink.
