Hi - as promised back with my second post featuring projects I made using Seth Apter's new stamps, paints and wood chips from PaperArtsy. The new products were launched yesterday and if you missed my first two projects and product release information you can find them here.
(using Wood Chips and stamp sets ESA03 / ESA04)
I love the new paint colours and the effects you can create with them. The focal point of this project is the wonderful wood chips - here using the circle and it's frame.
For the central portion I aimed to create a metallic effect using the paints. I started with black gesso - stippled quite thickly to create texture. I allowed this to dry before dry brushing with white gesso.
I then built up colour using watery washes of Mahogany, Terracotta, Smoked Paprika and Little Black Dress paints. I do this several times - drying in between. Finally I stippled with Green Patina with a dry brush.
The outer circle (Wood Chip frame) used the same technique with a little extra black and without the Patina.
I die cut several Drip Drops from Seth's Spellbinders die and sponged them with black gesso. Some then had mahogany added, others green patina before extra black was stippled where needed.
The background was created on white card using a credit card and paint to add various colours in layers - mud splat, key lime, buff and terracotta. I toned it all down with extra buff paint. I secondary stamped with black archival using the tag from ESA04 and the square stamp X from ESA03 - with the stamp in my hand so as not to get the full image.
I added some paint spatters with mahogany, some credit card lines in black and stamped some some extra text in patina. Finally black archival was swiped over the surface.
I cut a similar size piece of card and used my craft knife to create a frame. I painted this in the same way as the patina circle adding black around the edges with my finger to keep it random and inconsistent!
I am doing a set of videos to accompany these projects. Here is the second video - Rusty Patina..
If you missed video 1 - Textured Rust - here it is again.
