Christmas bells by Kasia Salmanowicz

 Hello,

December begins, so we can officially count down the days to Christmas!! Today I invite you to a video tutorial where I show you how to make bells in a winter-Christmas atmosphere. They will be great as a Christmas decoration. They can also be hung as a garland or added to a Christmas present. See for yourself how many possibilities there are.

First, I covered my bells with white gesso and then used lace which gave a very interesting structure. Then I used metal elements from Finnabair. In the sets, you will find beautiful small napkins and snowflakes that will surely enrich any project. For this small stars;)



For colouring, I chose Liquid Acrylic Pain Burnt Sienna and metallic paint in the Steampunk Copper colour. I also added a beautiful paste with embedded foil in shades of gold. Golden Dragon paste will add variety to any Christmas project, but you probably already know it!



I invite you to the tutorial, where you will see each stage of the project.



Have a beautiful and lovely December,

Kasia Salmanowicz

Doorway to heaven by Kesho Kage

Hello! 

Imagine finding a portal, one that leads you to legions of Angels, to where the streets are made of gold, and the song of music always fills the air! Today we are creating that portal. You can never go to far in the world of makeup/ Cosplay, making props to compliment, help sale the illusion, and even explain the story is an amazing addition that brings it all together. 

Taking this thrifted painting we are going to remodel the wood first by priming with white gesso, before adding the Moulds we made using Love Machine, Pocket Watches, Amun and Bast and many more that will all be linked below! After adhering them to our portal everything was brought to life using Prima Art Alchemy liquid acrylic paint in Violet, Brunt Sienna, and Ultramarine and sprayed with water for a weathered look, highlighting the high points using the Metallic Wax in White Pearl. I then used the Metallic Flakes in Gold glued on with the Gilding Glue. 



To add texture to this ancient doorway I also used the Gilding Glue to adhere the Art Stones in mega and mini. It wouldn’t be a portal without some ancient writings that had to be spoken to activate, so to create the magical incantation I mixed Prima Art Alchemy liquid acrylic paint in Ink Black with Art Ingredients Texture Powder and painted over the Manuscript stencil. Once I was happy with my creation and chose to finish it off with chains, and other embellishments to bring the riches to the surface! 


I hope you enjoy this video and all products used are listed below! I can’t wait for you to get inspired and to create your own doorways!

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.
