Caution - Concrete

Hello my crafty friends (:o)

Today i'm sharing a *just for fun* project


I recently got two solid wood pieces from a colleague to alter. I also had a play with concrete quite a while ago. And now i've joined these two different materials together


To start was really simple...


I ripped the paper off and sanded the solid wood piece. Both materials are a bit heavy, that's why i went for a screw right through the skull head and not using glue


Painted DecoArt Media Gesso


Of course, the skull on it's place makes the application of DecoArt Media Modeling Paste with a stencil a bit fuzzy


Applied DecoArt Media Texture Sand Paste around the head and on the edges of the wood piece for texture


Painted a layer DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Medium Grey Value 6


Next was a layer of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Metallic Silver, because i had something steampunkish in mind. Sealed the surface with a layer of DecoArt Media Matte Medium, too


Maybe some of you know this DecoArt Media Antiquing Cream (English Red Oxide in this case) already. You apply it and let it dry. The Antiquing Cream can then be removed with a damp cloth


Actually at the end this stage wouldn't be necessary, because i've changed my mind about colours after painting the skull head..you'll see...


Next ...some Media Fluid Acrylics Carbon Black for the head


Now ...you'll see the stages of drybrushing with Media Fluid Acrylics Titanium White ( always) and applying different colour washes

A wash of Media Fluid Acrylics Quinacridone Gold


Drybrushing


A wash of Media Fluids Phethalo Blue Hue


Drybrushing


A wash of Media Fluid Acrylics Quinacridone Gold with a tiny bit of Media Fluid Acrylics Paynes Grey


Painted some details with Media Fluid Acrylics Titanium White on the Skull Head. Used  some DecoArt Metallic Lustre silver on the wood piece and at this moment...i've change my mind about colour

Applied another layer of Media Fluid Acrylics Quinacridone Gold to the skull with a wet brush. Painted the details on the skull again. Changed the colour on wood piece by painting Media Fluid Acrylics Medium Grey Value 6 again and applied a wash of Transparent Yellow Iron Oxide


 Going deeper with colour by painting more washes of Media Fluid Acrylics Quinacridone Gold and Transparent Yellow Iron Oxide to the wood piece.


A last layer of Media Fluid Acrylics Quinacridone Gold just around the head and sealed the wood piece with decoArt Media Matte Medium


Oh my....covering everything up with..?
Yes...DecoArt Media Antiquing Cream Titanium White


Well, now you know this fun...removed some of the Antiquing Cream, mounted metal corners and aged them with Media Fluid Acrylics Carbon Black, Media Antiquing Cream White and Media Fluid Acrylics Quinacridone Gold


Again..some washes of Media Fluid Acrylics Quinacridone Gold and Transparent Yellow Iron Oxide


Chipboard covered with Media Fluid Acrylics Carbon Black


Painted a layer of DecoArt Media Crackle Paint


Andy Skinner Stencil


I think you can guess the used colours
Exactly,,,,stenciled with Fluid Acrylics Carbon Black, a wash of Fluid AcrylicsTransparent Yellow Iron Oxide to the chipboard and Quinacridone Gold on the edges besides some  Antiquing Cream White


Glued two *real* rusty bottle caps underneath and applied some RubOns




And......is it your cup of tea?
Thanks for reading and your appreciated comments
