I really love the little nuts
I went for my favorite technique from the Andy Skinner Timeworn Workshop
with a first layer of DecoArt Titanium white
A second layer of white and some drybrushing with medium grey on top
The nuts, bolts and the closure had a paint treatment with DecoArt Traditions black followed by raw umber and burnt umber on top. The running rust effect is done with a wash of Quinacridone Gold
The cover is sealed with Americana Duraclear matt varnish
I adhered the front and back cover to corrugated cardboard with double sided tape
I really love to make my own embellishments
I'm using some metal frames and Americana Writer White which drys 3 dimensional
Let dry over night. The paint will flatten when dry
On top i used some rub on's and American Tripple Thick
Looks a bit like enameled
More paint on the metal for the rusty look
Stipples of green acrylic paint for patina
While watching these pictures at this stage, i missed some running rust at the embellishment and the door was still a bit too empty for me.
What's behind the door?
I decided to make an image transfer like Mr Skinner explained here, for the finished look
Do you like it?
Thanks for reading to the end and your appreciated comments
