Hi there Folks
Just a quick drop in today, I'm about to begin painting a wardrobe but this morning I've been finishing off a few bits that I started at The Craft Barn demo this weekend. One of them was this frame
Apologies for the lousy photo but the weather is miserable and this was the best I could get! I started out with a wooden frame from The Craft Barn and applied gesso with a sponge dabber to give some texture. When it was dry I painted it with acrylic paints. When that had dried I used Dreamweaver white crackle paste and a tando mask to add the cogs and left it to dry and crack. I then used Aged Mahogany distress ink to colour everything and added some inka gold to bring out the textures. The colours look much better in reality but still I hope you can see all the textures ok.
Enjoy the rest of the day everyone and be blessed in your creative journey.
