Good Luck!


As i found this cutie i knew it wanted to be treated with wings
Look how happy it looks now (:o)


This was the original colour and i've already cut some slits with the dremel


After two layers of gesso


Created wings from grungepaper and applied gesso also


Painted the pig skin - coloured and a wash of raw umber on top



The wings got a treatment with Texture Glas


I've glued cardboard gears and strips of grungepaper to the pig


I gave the wings a wash of Traditions Aquamarine and the embellishments where painted skin - coloured, too

The aging part was done with raw umber


I've applied the paint with with a brush.....


....and softly took off the paint with baby wipes


Next... glued on the metal embellishments


Painted the metal with raw umber, a touch of burnt sienna....


... some spots of blue green light and Metallic Lustre Gold


Sealed everything with Faux Finish Medium







Pigs fly just fine

Supplies: DecoArt Traditions Acrylic Raw Umber, Burnt Sienna, Blue Green Light, Aquamarine.                     Texture Glas, Faux Finish Medium and Metallic Lustre Gold Rush.
