Got a little carried away with this week’s Mixed Media Recipe Card and really took my time over the creation.
Often I see dragons as a theme in creative projects. I’m not sure if it is the mythology or the scope for imagination that draws folk but I decided to see what I could come up with.
So, here is the next in the series.
Lots of texture and magical sparkle going on in this one.
Interested in knowing what I used and how I did it? Then read on dear friend.
Paints and Mediums
- Pébéo Vitrail 17 Turquoise,
- Pébéo Studio Acrylics 43 Cadmium Green Hue,
- Pébéo Fantasy Moon Apricot,
- Lightweight Cardstock,
- Small circular paper punch,
- PVA Glue,
- Silicon Spreader,
- Flat Head Acrylic Paint Brush,
- Wet Wipes,
- Brush Cleaner,
This is how it was done.
- Cut lots of lots of circles from lightweight cardstock using the circular paper punch and glue them to the surface using the PVA glue and let this set for a few hours.
- Give the whole thing an even coating of the Pébéo Studio Acrylics 43 Cadmium Green Hue paint using the flat head brush. Let this dry for a couple of hours. Wash the brush out with brush cleaner and set aside to dry.
- Next, using the silicone spreader, apply a thin layer of the Pébéo Vitrail 17 Turquoise. By stroking the medium in one direction – towards the overlapping ‘scales’ – you will encourage a denser settlement of colour that will help highlight the scales. Let this dry for a good few hours or, preferably, overnight. Wipe the silicone spreader down with a wet wipe.
- Finally, repeat step 3 with the Pébéo Fantasy Moon Apricot being quite forceful with the pressure so that the gold mica settles around the overlapping areas of the scales. Let this dry for a good few hours or, preferably, overnight. Wipe the silicone spreader down with a wet wipe.
Ok, that’s it for this one. Cool and creative, eh?
Hope you can make use of this information in some way for a future project.
