Dead man's chest book by Kasyopeaart

Hi, Today I have another inspiration for you. This time I was inspired by the film "Pirates of the Caribbean". I created a drawer book with a leather effect and a steampunk heart hidden inside. 

I started with the White Heavy Gesso. I painted the entire cover with it. After drying, I applied 3D Matte Gel with a spatula, and then with the help of a sponge, I created a texture imitating the leather spine of the book.

After drying the back of the book, I repainted it with White Heavy Gesso, and prepared Liquid Acrylic paints. 

The first step was to apply Ocher and True Yellow paint. After completely drying, I took two more colours and mixed Burnt Sienna and Carmine, and this time I could not completely dry these colours, because I pulled off the excess colour with a paper towel to show the colour I gave first, i.e. shades of yellow. To darken and age the edges I applied Ink Black. 

I painted the previously prepared castings from Finnabair moulds with Black Heavy Gesso. I painted the middle of the drawer also with black gesso. 

I covered the cast of the heart with gilding glue, and after drying I glued copper-coloured Metallic Fakes to it.

From the prepared casts I arranged the compositions and glued them with Heavy Body Gel in the middle of the drawer, I added Mechanical elements, and finally, I used matte waxes to create a patina effect. 

The last stage was to glue the frames on top of the book, I painted the frames with Brass paste, but I did it with an almost dry brush so as not to completely cover the castings with colour. And I also added matte waxes to create a patina effect. At the very end, I used Clear Antiquing Wax, which matted the entire cover because Liquid Acrylic paints are glossy when dried. 

Book-Drawer as the one stolen from a pirate ship. I hope you like it.

Steampunk floral altered notebook by Karla Neira

Altered notebook!

I worked the pastes with black gesso, starting from the absence of light and then gradually giving light.

I chose pink tones as a colour palette, keeping the black background. I thought of a steampunk floral composition, I worked with flowers and Chipboards in the shape of gears, giving an aged and worn colour effect to the whole work.

Finish by accentuating the colour with Wax Matte and glam it up with Glass Glitter and Unicorn Effect Paste.
