Hi everyone! As you know Finnabair moulds always provide a huge selection of elements to bring any idea to life. I had no doubt that the gears and metal embellishments I chose were exactly what I needed to create the project I imagined.
I very often take a lot of different paints and apply them layer by layer until I get the surface I need. In this project, I was working with my favourite Opal Magic Paint (I used Blue-Gold colour) and Metallic Paints – Mermaid Teal, Dragonfly, Stormy Ocean, and Golden Moss. I applied them to the elements and a little to the background in a mix with water.
I created pattern on background with Tiger’s Eye Stones Jewel Effect Paste and Gothic Stencil. My favorite Rust Effect Pastes – Brown and Red - helped me to add texture on gears and give them rusty look.
I also used several waxes: Mystic Turquoise and Green Patina to give the elements more colour and Burshed Iron, Vintage Gold, Rich Copper, Red Amber, Aged Brass to give a metallic shine.
