I'm back today with a little mini canvas, steampunk style. My favourite!
I've used some mitform castings, a resin frame and a wooden word: Awesome. From the random arts shop. And some little bits and pieces from my stash.
Don't you just love that squid!!!
I started to colour my mini canvas with crackle paint aged mahogoy. I had this in my stash. Make sure you put a thick layer is you want bigger cracks. (yes i know how this sounds) Remember, the more paint, the bigger the cracks.
i let this dry over night as using a heat tool doesn't work. Then i went in with some lindy's sprays. I used some purple and red tones. To match the mahogony.
Then it was time to colour the decoration pieces. First i covered everything with black gesso. This, to make everything the same colour and give more depth. Then i sprayed everything with the same sprays and used some waxes to accent the reliëfs and make it a bit more shiny.
Now it's time to glue everything down. I use my glue gun. But if you are more patiënt (:P) you can use matt medium for example.
Before i glue it down i Always lay everything down to check where exactly i want it. After i everything was glued down, i went back in with some wax to make some areas like the edges stand out a bit more. And this is the end result!
