Modelling Paste Week - by Nikki K

Morning all,

This week our task is to use Modelling Paste in our makes. 

I have taken a Tando Mixed Media board, as I love these for little hangers or technique boards, they are so easy to use and are brilliant for when you want to 'art' but can't tackle a big project.  They make nice gifts when done too, as they fit in an envelope nicely. 

First, Gesso the board all over, then take the 'All Seeing Eye' stamp, and stamp slightly above centre.  Give a wash of Cobalt teal hue and primary magenta over the eye.  When dry, use Liquid Glass to give a clear raised coating over the eye area.

Around the eye and over the rest of the board, spread a layer of crackle paint. When dry, give a wash of Cobalt Teal Hue. Highlight areas with Metallic wax in Copper.

Over the top of this, I layered a Tando Brick wall stencil, and used modelling paste through it.  This was given a wash of Red Iron Oxide, and then some Patina Antiquing Cream in places.

You could add holes to the top of the board and some wire to make a little hanging, or a centre hole to make a tag.  A cropodile works well on the board, no problems.

Hope you like it,

Have a good week,

Nikki K.
