So Marked of an area 4cm from the rim to allow the lid to rest when raised. The rest of the lid rubbed down with sand paper. Next tubes of artist acrylic paint, purple for the top, orange for the middle and a mix of black and white for the foreground. Wet paint pushed and pulled around to mingle and some red added. Acrylics dry quickly enabling the 2 Stampendous stamps to be added with Stayzon. The centre panel of hessian, a bit of natural fabric shower lily and the plaster skull were added with Powertex that wonderful fabric harder. The skull filled in with Titanium Buff.
This morning I decided to add the TH bird stamped in black stayzon and then like all the stamped images touched up with black ProMarker. Some dry brushing added green and purple to the stiff fabric, the same colours used on both the stamped skull and the skeletons dress, finally a little imagination craft silver shimmer touched in places. Finally a layer of Viva crackle paste to seal and give an extra effect to the overall project, this lifted some of the paint at the edge where the lid starts to curve giving an added layer of distressing.
Now all I have to do is fit it! Oh yeah it is going onto the toilet.
