There are not many steps for this project but it is time intensive due to the paperclay elements.
Have to say that the Uprights are the perfect substrate to create a relic style piece of art.
Clear Texture Paste (I worked with Ranger)
Crackle Paste (I worked with Golden)
Fresco Finish Paints:- White Fire, Pewter
Extras:- Cotton style fabric, sari ribbon, rhinestones
Begin by preparing paperclay elements. Working with paperclay and Prima moulds, create scrolls, border and wings. Leave to dry. Once they are dry, apply paint.
Apply Gesso to upright followed by applying clear texture paste to Star Shower. Once dry, apply Frescos. For the base, apply paint only.
Apply Gesso to MDF heart, followed by Crackle Paste.
Onto the paperclay elements and R&A, apply Frescos. Begin to layer up the elements onto the upright, including the prepared heart.
Stamp wish onto cotton scrap, layering with sari ribbon before adhering to upright. Embellish with rhinestones.
It is now ready to be displayed.
Until next week,
