Hello my happy crafters. I'm back with another steampunk piece. This time a letter R.
Unlike my last Steampunk piece where i used only Lindy's sprays this time i used Rust paste.... Enjoy
I started out by covering the whole thing with black gesso and was intending in covering all the embellishments with black gesso but decided to cover it all it white texture paste. I attached resins, cogs, an old bag buckle, chipboards, and flowers.
I covered the piece in white texture paste then used Finnabair icing paste (mystic Turquoise). I love the amazing shimmer this paste has.
I then used Prima marketing Opal Magic (rose-bleu). At this point i was hoping to go with a rustic french feel but i wasn't happy with the look so i continued to add colour with Lindy's sprays and used the prima marketing rust paste trio. I started with the dark brown, then the red and high lighted with the yellow.
I added a tone of Lindy's spray (starburst sweet violet purple teal) and (moon shadow mist Treasure island aqua). I also added some Kaiserkrafy paper blooms (grape). I also continued to work in the rust paste. Going back over all the rusted areas with the same process as previously mentioned.
I then decided to rust paste Everything. I left patches of colour so i could highlight with the sweet velvet. I sprayed this colour onto my messy mat and used a soft brush to dab the colour onto desired places. I love this colour, that amazing teal colour just pops on a dark back ground.
I absolutely adore how this turned out. Adding the rust paste to all of the embellisments was definitely a fantastic idea. I hope you like this project as much as i did creating it. Below is a list of products available in store. www.randomarts.com.au
