Wild and free by Olga Ravenskaya

Hi dear friends!

It’s Olga Ravenskaya here today with you today. 

Wild and Free – my new project and video tutorial using beautiful Metallique and Sparks acrylic paints, waxes and moulds.

Thinking of late Autumn I wanted to create a project in deep muted colors with a light touch of hoarfrost.

Firstly I’ve painted the wooden base mixing Silver Spoon, Hazelnut and Brass Hardware Metallique paints and then tinted with White Gesso.  

All the chipboard and castings from moulds I’ve primed with White and Black gesso and then painted using Stormy Ocean, Midnight Sky, Silver Spoon, Red Wine and Flame Metallique paints. 

A touch of Old Silver wax gave the extra beautiful glow to the embellishments. 

Finally I’ve used microbeads, glass glitter and glitter for toppings. 

Here is my step-by-step video, hoping you’ll enjoy it!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Gothic canvas by Anastasia Kuznetsova

Hello, friends!

Today I want to show you how I created a gothic canvas. For me, this is a large format. The canvas size is 30 by 40 cm. I started my project by creating a background. To give it texture, I applied the Light Paste through stencils. Without waiting for it to dry, I applied the Light Paste and White Crackle Paste in some places with a palette knife. I also sprinkled the background with Art Stones.

Using various paints and gesso, I created colorful layers. Finally I added some Metallic Flakes and made some ink and stamp prints. I covered my canvas with a matte varnish so that it is not afraid of water and touching my fingers.

Next, I started creating a layered composition. I used a chipboard, Mechanicals, clay figurines and Art Pebbles. I made clay figurines using molds from Finnabair and Prima Marketing Inc. I covered all the elements with Black Heavy Gesso. I used Heavy Body Gel for gluing.

I used Patina Effect Pastes to give my host an aged look. First I applied blue and mint paste. They contain particles of sand and imitate patina. I diluted the same pastes a little with water and applied here and there to the background. After completely dry, I took the bronze paste from the set. It is very plastic and ideally imitates bronze, which has emerged through the patina.

Then, in some places in my composition and background, I applied the Red Rust Paste from the set “Rust Effect Pastes”. At the very end, I added Vintage Gold Wax to diversify the metallic sheen of my project.

You can watch the creation process in this video. Enjoy,
