Today I am sharing my fourth and final MDF triptych. Any of you who have previously purchased any That’s Crafty! item:- stencil, storage units, white/greyboard, plywood, etc will know that all are great quality, the MDF triptychs are of the same high quality – smooth edges, perfect alignment and sturdy MDF that will take all the abuse from various media you choose to apply to it.
That’s Crafty! Dinky Stencils – Church Window TC065, Quatrefoil 1 Background
Infusions – Violet Storm, Blackcurrant, Black Knight
Treasure Gold (That’s Crafty! stock a range of Gilding Waxes)
UHU Glue Stick
Extras:- Sari Ribbon, Copper Fabric, Rusty Tin Wire, Prima Dresden Trim, Deli Wrap, Handmade Paper
Apply Gesso to all panels followed with Frank Garcia powders and Infusions Black Knight and Violet Storm, misting with water, allowing colours to blend. Then randomly stamp text stamp from Castle Keep.
Stamp LPC stamp onto handmade paper. Adhere with UHU to the middle panel. Now, onto all panels, apply clear embossing paste to stencil, I worked in my favourite way, randomly. Leave to dry naturally. When dry, areas can be darkened with Frank Garcia powders and Infusions Violet Storm and Black Knight.
Stain various papers with Infusions and also some sari ribbon. To a piece of Dresden Trim apply the Prima Rust Paste. Adhere all those prepared elements around the stamped focal.
Apply Infusions, Frank Garcia Powders and Old Gold to Relic and Artifact. I leave it to dry naturally but you could use a heat gun. Adhere to top of main panel with Gel Medium.
Now to focus on the front of the triptych. Working on craft mat, lay the two front panels side by side. Apply Rust Paste through stencil. Once dry, highlight areas with Treasure Gold, also applying to edges of panels, etc. Bind the panels together with rusty tin wire along with threading through some of the previously stained sari ribbon and some beautiful, torn copper fabric.
I had so much fun working on all four MDF triptychs, so thank you to Laura for this opportunity to play with some of That’s Crafty’s latest designs.
Until next time,
