SASPC - Winter Special - Industrial / Steampunk

Hi Crafters (:o)

The Winter Special Theme Nov/Dec for SASPC is
with an industrial /steampunk style



Ok...beside some step by step pictures, what else can i explain about my project?
It is inspired by a canadian - irish tv series with an historic background and a lot fictional elements called *Vikings*

...but it's also inspired by the computer game *The Elder Scrolls* Skyrim
The base construction comes from Storm the Castle, who also invented the construction of the Medieval Plague Mask, i've shown in an earlier post here

Step by Step


The stapled cardboard construction is covered with aluminium foil and masking tape on top


Next i've adhered a layer of kitchen roll paper with Decoupage glue. When dry, mounted the next layers of cardboard strips



The horns are a construction of aluminium foil, covered with masking tape, stucked into an empty kitchen roll and glued to the base with the hot glue gun


Next up..more layers of kitchen roll paper and Decoupage glue to the helmet and horns



Defining the helmet, i've glued down another strip of cardboard and halfpearls as rivets


The cardboard strip got a layer of Texture Sand and the helmet was painted with black acrylic paint


The white stuff in the picture above is Kroma Crackle, i've applied for cracks and texture


Next up you'll see some stages of painting.
I started with a wash of Quinacridone Gold on top of the Kroma Crackle, Silver Metallic on the helmet and some drybrushing raw umber, burnt umber and burnt sienna on top of the cardboard strips and rivets



I also painted with black Antiquing Cream on top of the Silver Metallic paint




Defining horns with more washes




Defining the helmet








Well..... i hope you like the wearable helmet
In either case, it's a very cool decoration, don't you think?

Thanks for reading and your appreciated comments
Don't forget to join the challenge at SASPC with your industrial / steampunkish project till the end of december

Karte nach Sketch - Momente

KuckKuck (:o)

Heute mal eine Karte nach einem Sketch von KREATIVtisch.



Die Inspiration zu dieser Karte kommt aus dem Buch LaBlanche Mixed Media 2015
Meine Formate sind oft *frei Schnauze* und diese misst 12 cm x 17 cm


Zuerst den Hintergrund gestempelt, mit Archival Black und einem Stempel von LaBlanche


Auf die Flagge habe ich DecoArt Texture Glass aufgetragen und trocknen lassen


Anschließend Distress Ink Black Soot gewischt


Von dem Texture Glass die Distress Farbe vorsichtig mit einem feuchten Tuch herunter nehmen, damit das Weiss darunter wieder zum Vorschein kommt


Verziert habe ich mit Washi Tape.....


....Blümchen mit Newsprint ebenfalls von LaBlanche 


Auch der *Momente* Stempel ist aus einem LaBlanche Set, bezogen über HSE24 und im Shop noch nicht erhältlich.


Bling gehört natürlich auch dazu von Prima *Say it in Crystals*



 So...Mädels und nun ran an die Stempel (:o)

xoxo
