Further to my last post I wanted to share this other mixed media work with you. She was given her title by one of our distributors, Liz Dixon, and bearing in mind the low temperatures over the recent days I thought I would share her with you.
I covered my canvas with ivory and lead Powertex hardener in a random pattern. Once fully dried I transferred the image using Powerprint, my main concern here was making sure the Powerpoint was spread evenly and didn’t dry out anywhere before I put the image down ready for the transfer, it’s important to be quick and thorough when using a larger image otherwise it can be so disappointing to reveal your image and find a crucial bit hasn’t transferred.
I added a little more hardener and gently worked in some Stone Art powder, picking up the texture by dry brushing with ivory Powertex hardener once everything was dry.
I chose some pieces of cotton lace ‘snowflakes’ to embellish my piece and rubbed in ivory hardener before applying them onto my canvas. I then used a stencil and some Easy structure to add interest in my corners, you can see detail of this above.
A touch of silver and gold colortrix and I was done!
What about the little birdcages I hear you ask?
I have no excuse for that, I liked them and felt they were right for the spot!
These are the products I used!
