We are recycling at Try it on Tuesday. Do hop over for lots more inspiration from the design team and to play along in our challenge.
So it is coffee tin to paint brush holder for me!
I coated my tin in fresco paint, crackle glaze, distress paints and inks - no major plan here, just wanted it grungy and a little rusty looking. I also stencilled little hearts with grunge paste and when all the inks and paints were dry added a bit of shadow around them.
I stamped my images onto tissue paper in black archival before using matt medium to adhere to my tin. I then varnished it with clear varnish - as if it is going to sit on my desk I wanted it to be tough!
Finally I got out my melt pot and randomly added some beeswax. Once dry I gave it a bit of polish and added a small amount of mica powder. My photos are not the best so you may not be able to see those bits!
I would like to enter:
Thanks very much for looking - I do appreciate your visits and comments.
