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!
