Product Focus By Nicky Roussou

 Welcome to my blog for Tando-Creative

This week is 
product focus and I have been wanting to make a Guitar Clock for ages but have never got around to it so this was great fun!

This photo catches the colour better. 

I started out by laying out the Guitar and clock.

I cut sheets of card stock and ran them through my big shot in a Tim Holtz 3D wood embossing folder ( one of my favourites ever!)

 I then stuck the paper over the entire Guitar, leaving the edges really rough so I could peel them up.

Then covered with distress ink.

For the Layered Butterflies I painted them with a beautiful rose gold paint and some large grain medium.

For the Guitar strings I used this rusty wire I've had in my stash for a while which I've dying to use and was perfect for this project. 

Doesn't this look great with a bit of gilding wax to bring out and highlight the string.

I repeated the same process for the other Butterflies and the cogs and I added Angel Wings too.

The clock and wings were coated with Lava Paste and heated and painted over.

I added some crackle pates over the Guitar randomly and gave it a coat of Decoart Quin Gold

Finally a coat of watered down brown oil paint.

and some gilding wax to finish off.
