I waxed the ovals and the circles first, then painted the cloth. I let it dry and then waxed the lines and painted over the whole thing. I love working in layers. Here is the other side, which is more muted and subtly different.
And if you really want subtle - here it is. Also done in several layers. It's light, but with a lot of transparency. This is a section of a larger piece - it reminds me of a galaxy. Also done with paint. The original fabric was gray from the rusting process I put it through long ago. And now, I am going to bed and will hopefully sleep a bit late tomorrow. Hope you all have a wonderful holiday, whether you are lighting trees or candles.
