Tole painting -Mirror

I am learning a new painting technique. Tole.
This is my first project, a mirror frame .
Have done Donna Dewberry one stroke but tole painting is relearning techniques.
Base coat done:

This is the finished frame done by Betty Caithness

Quite the challenge, was told this is a beginner project.
Doesn't seem like it to me.

Will mine look this good at the end?
If it does I will certainly post the finished frame.

Good luck on the rest of project.
