New Zealand and Australia: Meet M

M: Meet New Zealand and Australia

She was pulled from a rummage box of antique bronze and ormolu embellishments at the St. Ouen flea markets in Paris by the team of Lydia from EfexUSA and Stacey from Faux Studio Designs. She is an original bronze with a sophisticated look about her. She is M.

M - Original Bronze

The original M – antique bronze embellishment

She features a large wreath with two crossed federal flames and a small bow, measures 235mm x 235mm, and is totally French. She’s sexy, bold and has been used to create M1 – our newest Efex bendable moulding.

M1 - Bronze Patina

Efex M1 – finished with gilding wax

Like all of our 160+ designs M1 is bendable and ready to decorate anything you can think of. She is easy to gild with gilding wax, metallic paint, or foils. We layered different colors of gilding wax to achieve the great patina above.

M on grey

M would look equally elegant on a bedhead, footboard or large armoire. This signature piece is ready to ship, and all of our dealers can order one for you today.

M Trumeau

M1 featured on a gorgeous trumeau in Florida.

And stay tuned, M was not the only antique embellishment from that day that will be transformed into an Efex moulding…more to come.




Efex on Stage

Efex on Stage

One of the best parts of this job is getting to see the wonderful, inventive pieces created using Efex. It’s also thrilling to see our products on display – Facebook, other websites, shops, homes, etc.

Recently, we’ve had the privilege of providing our mouldings to the Melbourne Theatre Company for a beautiful mirror used as a prop for their current production – The Distance.

This mirror was designed by the very talented Tracy Grant Lord. The Melbourne Theatre Company Props Department, headed by Geoff McGregor, made the mirror and the finishing artwork was executed by the MTC Scenic Department.

They used an incredible array of our mouldings, trimming them and overlapping them to suit. If you look closely under the large moulding at the top of the mirror, you can see that they’ve used an L2 leg moulding and simply cut it in half along the centerline to suit their piece. Can you spot the SC3 scroll used on the upper corners? What other mouldings can you identify?

The piece was finished in a light grey tone rather than true white, giving it a beautiful aged appearance.

And if you’re wondering about the two mouldings at the very top of the mirror, I can tell you that these are on the ‘coming soon’ list as a new large rosette and another leg moulding.

Thank you to Michele Preshaw of the MTC for sharing this lovely piece with us. We look forward to working with you again in the future.
