UPDATE: seems my auto post didn't post last night so everyone has been commenting on Monday's post...
My desk has been a little busy this week and as you can tell from this picture it is busy again today! I am sorting and trying to get things together to make some keys for swapping that have to be in the mail next week...hmmm...13 altered keys in a week? Having never joined a challenge like that it will be just that...a challenge!
Are you missing the witches hat that was on the Prima craft inks stand? Well folks I got it done this week too! Ta da!!!
|A front view!|
I first covered a plain old paper mache witches hat with bunches of grunge paper/board gears I cut out using the various Tim Holtz gear dies I have. I then painted the whole hat with black spray paint! Next step was covering the whole hat with VerDay Iron Paint and then spraying with the Patina spray. VerDay is interesting because the paint actually has metals in it and when you spray it with the Patina you actually get oxidized metals. Tenseconds Studios carries the VerDay products and you can get them in bronze, brass, copper, and iron like I used. I plan on trying this on a couple other paper mache boxes I have using the different colors and you know the interesting thing is until I moved craftrooms I forgot I had these...Hey Darnell does this count as an NBUS?
Okay enough for me this week. Already photo heavy but I will leave you with one last photo...my pool today!
