Hi - Jackie here!
I'm back for another post Featuring our Partner for the month of January~ DecoArt!
DecoArt has been around for ever! teeheehee Okay, I exaggerate! At least for a long time! And over the last year or so they have added such a yummy line of mixed media products- full of rich pigmented colors and all kinds of fun textures and mediums! Check them out- I just know you will find some products that will be on your "have to have" list!
So, let's get started- I had some boxes in my stash that were from a previous project- that did not go well...
First was to cover over previously painted boxes with gesso.
After they dried,
I added flexible modeling paste through a snowflake stencil and waited over night.
Next came my first coats of color~
DecoArt Dazzling Metallics-Worn Penny on the round box
and DecoArt Dazzling Metallics- Venetian Gold on the oval shaped box
Here I knocked back the blues a bit with some DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic-Yellow Oxide
and then continued adding layer after layer of color till I achieved the look I wanted
Finally came the two coats of DecoArt Media Gloss Varnish to seal in all that beautiful color and texture.
I'm so glad you joined my today! I do hope I convinced your muse to get into your studio and play some art!!
