Rusty Old Compass By Dee (Anything Goes)

Hi everyone I am Dee with my first post as part of the Tando design team.
I would like to say a huge thank you to Di & the team for being so 
welcoming. I thought that I would give you  
a flavour of my style today.
So lets get started, I absolutely love Deco Art Media Line products 
which I used to create this piece.
For the center compass I covered it in texture sand paste 
and allowed to dry.
Next I painted the big compass in Deco Art media fluids Titan buff.
Then I stamped in black archival Andy skinners peeling 
paint from his Industrial Set
I then applied Crackle paste to parts of the main compass and 
allowed to dry prior to painting with burnt umber.
I finished it of with Andy's dirty wash.
Back to the center piece and I painted that with Burnt Umber,
  Prussian Blue Hue, Cobalt Turquoise Hue &
 Quinacridone Gold.
A spinner was attached, as was rivets this was then highlighted with gold
 gilding wax. I hope you liked the post please feel free to ask,
 any questions or just let me know what you think.
Cheers Dee x
