Art Beyond

Hello Friends!
We're starting the beautiful month of April with Marta's amazing new creation. And this piece is right down my alley - you will quickly see why. ;)
Enjoy & we hope you'll feel inspired to look around your house and create some great Art!


Hi everyone,
It's Marta Lapkowska here.
New month and new inspiration. Today I am back with quite a simple project that I hope everyone can do. I used an old computer part which I think had already got great design. I am sure you have some similar items at home. :)
I love using not so obvious and interesting recycled items.




 I started by covering my computer part with Black Gesso.


Next step was to choose the colours that would bring my item to life.
I am in total love with new Art Alchemy acrylic paints from Finnabair. I adore the stunning colour palette and fantastic consistency.


I decided to go for reds and pinks with addition of gold. You can check the exact colours I chose in the links at the bottom of the post.
For shading and blending I used White and Black Gesso.


As my final touches I added few new Mechanicals.
These "rusted" pieces perfectly matched my make.



Happy creating!
