This months mood board was a little bit of a challenge for me. The purple and green colour combination is not usually colours i combine. However i'm totally happy with the end result of this Altered Candle Holder.
I started out with this very plain, gothic looking Candle Holder i've had laying around my house for many years. I covered the whole project with a good layer of white gesso. I also painted (2 crafty) chipboards, resins and a clay face i had in my stash.
I used LUMIERE (halo-violet gold) acrylic paint on all the pieces. I left a white edge on the candle holder so i could use lindy's sprays and wax to create a lush green. I also used a combination of Purple Hues Lindy's sprays over the acrylic paint. Full list of products available at the end of the blog.
I used a combination of green hues in the lindy's range to create a lush colour i was happy with. I also added a little Magical Shakers to add highlights then finally some (mint sparkle) wax until i was happy. I did the same process on the chipboards. I also added a little of the (Electric Violet) Wax to all the purple Embellishments. I used a sofy brush to add the purple wax and my finger to rub on the mint wax
I also added moss, mini prills, used alot more (mint Sparkle) wax to highlight and flat back purple gems.
