Hello crafty friends (:o)
How's going? Are you all in a christmas mood already?
I've altered a papermaché vase to fit my recently finished suitcase - table
and i'll join the challenge at *Altered Eclectic* - Anything Goes
as long as it is not a card
Step by Step
First i've cut a hole in the middle
I printed the specimen man from smeared ink onto A4 size vellum, painted the butterflies from the back and adhered the vellum inside the vase. I also painted a layer of Gesso
I've covered the edges with lace
Next i've covered the vase completely with DecoArt Texture Crackle
I also applied Decoart Modeling Paste
I've glued down some flowers and butterflies.The vase then had a paint - treatment with green colours i didn't liked, so i've painted another layer of Gesso to start new....
I've painted some spots with DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic Cobalt Teal Hue and Transparent Red Iron Oxide
On top a layer of Media Black Antiquing Cream as shown in this video by Andy Skinner
Matte Medium was painted from now on...between all layers to seal the paint
Quinacridone Gold applied as a wash
Media Patina Antiquing Cream
Finished with Media White Antiquing Cream
I hope you like this *arty* vase.
Thanks for reading and your appreciated comments
