Hi folks two lovely days of playing around and I have finished my first mirror. I have covered the mirror with a piece of paper so I could get a photo. This is the first time I have tri
I used gesso and painted my mirror frame then used Eco Friendly acrylic paint colour Lake for my base coat. I then used a bit of kitchen sponge with holes pulled in. I sponged Lime and Blue Patina over. I then added a more pale jade colour. I stamped on tissue paper and coloured on the wrong side with coloured pencils. I stuck these on with melted beeswax then more beeswax over the top. In the blank places I stamped with gold paint and a chicken wire stamp also in the Patina paint with diamonds stamp. I added some frantage with white and gold powder. The corners were covered in Croco paint and left to dry then stuck on the other two corners I embossed with gold embossing powder . I decided to add a 3d butterfly , this was made with two different die cuts which I embossed gold also. I cut the first one out and stuck it onto my dirty wet wipe from cleaning my paint up with. I cut around this and then added some glitter. Next I added the other on top. To finish off I also decided to 3d my two flowers and painted some wax through some sequin waste and colour with gilding wax.
All of these items were new to me and I had a wonderful time being creative and learning new things.
Thanks for calling by. I hope you have been having some crafting fun to. See you soon. Hugs x ChrisB
