After months of excitement and trepidation its finally here, The Book :) its wonderful to finally be able to hold it in my hands, Maggie Grey and Michael Wicks
have done a wonderful job, and I can't stop smiling when I look at it
I have been busy doing other things, I made this using Lutradur, molding paste and paints, pelmet vilene and Fibre In-Form foils
here's a close up
I am half way through making this and having a bit of trouble fitting the base so have put it to one side while I think about it, it was inspired by a ceramic ornament on my mantle piece it looks like copper and I have been wanting to make something this shape for ages, not as easy to put together as it was in my head
The close ups are a truer colour than the large picture
I bought these two a couple of weeks ago and haven't had much time to play with them
but I did add some to this piece here, it was sprayed with Adirondack inks and silk paints and while wet I sprinkled some of the powder on top, not how you are supposed to add it, but thought I would see what happens, I only sprayed it with water and it didn't rust but stayed a gunmetal colour, I over sprayed with Moonglow Moonshadow mists, then painted on some Golden gel matt medium, when applying the medium it was making the underlying colours run.
I sprinkled the rust powder on and spritzed it with white vinegar a few times.
It was interesting to see the rust that was originally applied started to show through on the left hand side and bottom left
As the rust dried I could still see the gel medium creating a shiny streak so over sprayed the lot with Moonshadow Mist Gossamer Gold, this knocked back the shine and still allowed the rust to show through, can't wait to play with this some more.
This is the back, some great colours showing through even a bit of rust
