Paint it up! .... is the device. It was time, to pull out my acrylic paints after my last card obsession. I still have some to show. (:o)
Up to the Da Vinci Chest now. I'll show you the finished project first and at the end some pictures how i did it, by using a picture ( paper) transfer technique.
Here is the box i started with
Primed with Gesso first, as you can see on the lid
Painted with DecoArt Glorious Gold
I used a laserprint picture from the internet and glued to the lid with Ranger Multi Matt Medium.
When it was dry, i gently rubbed the paper off with water and my fingers
No...you don't need a fork (:o)
I used a crackle medium and a lot washes with translucent acrylic paint.
If you want to know how that works, i advice to watch a video on YouTube made by Andy Skinner you'll find here
I also used the crackle medium and acrylic paint for the background on the tags
Again some washes with translucent acrylics.
I stamped on top using a set from Katzelkraft
The pen nip i've bought on ebay is coloured with alkohol ink and glued to a skewer.
Hope you like it! (:o)
Next time, i'll give you an update of the huge canvas i'm still working on and sure some more cards.
Thanks for reading and leaving appreciated comments.
