First painted all the panels with black gesso and then fixed everything together to make the box. Using white Dreamweaver embossing paste and an Andy Skinner stencil. Painted over the side with Distress inks and then went over it all with Indigo Blu crackle paste, the embossing paste had not quite gone off creating this erie pinky wash. The crackle paste has to be 'set' with slap it on a sealant.
When everything had finally settled down dribbled along the bottom with stampendous shabby ep in various colours and textures. Still not getting the effect I wanted spread down from the top Texture Paste (Black Sand) and dripped over that green alcohol ink. Thought it was finished and then remembering the TH wings die cut out in blue acetate and lime green origami paper these were cut out and added.
Great to use so many different things and compare the results. Loved re-discovering the Glimmer Mists and Grunge Board. Not impressed with the Crackle paste, think it was given a good try out but it has to be quite thickly applied and then it takes days to develop the cracks. It you want it to be coloured you have to mix it with acrylic paint which might or might not result in the effect you want.
Minx thinks its a nice box she sits in it.
