paints and can be used on
Neil is starting us off today...
He has painted this lovely box -
Neil says ...
Paint the box using a combination of the three
colours of paint.
When the base colour is down, add some
rough strokes of colour as you can see here.
Use a moist wipe to blend the colours in
which creates a more subtle tonal finish.
Paint the glass with the Starlight paint too.
Dab the paint with a tissue while wet to
remove the brushstrokes and give a
more textured finish.
When the paint is dry, cut a piece of card and
cut out space for the mask in the area you
want it to go. I found it easier to do it this way
as I was concerned that taping it to the
glass would lift the paint when I removed
it. Use black paste to cover.
Then I got "brave" because I was too
impatient to wait until it had dried, and
just laid my next mask over and carefully
spread the black paste over...
Leave to dry thoroughly.
Cut a piece of card to fit the glass and stamp
the map as seen, trying not to press too hard
on the inside edges so it isn't such a straight
line. Colour with a bit of distress inks in areas
to create interest. Glue this to the back
of the glass with Faux Finishing Medium,
making sure the design faces the correct way
when the lid is closed (Yes, this is the
voice of experience speaking!)
To finish the inside you could stamp and colour
the card, or do as I did and raid your decorative
tape box.......to finish I edged it with copper tape.
Add some texture by stamping the map along the
edges of the lid
Everything was then given a coat of finishing
medium to seal and protect the top.
I brushed it over then dabbed it with a
scrunched up piece of tissue to remove
How amazing is this??
So Neil has used the paints on both wood
This is what Neil used -
