Well this is really something different Saturday as Its MDF and the nee Metallic Gilding Polishes, masks and some stamping! This piece shows the wonderful polishes perfectly which I will be introducing to everyone on Hochanda tomorrow night, along with the second half of my spring stamp launch, tomorrow night at 8pm.
I will be demoing at the NEC hobby crafts show today for the Art of Craft so pop along and say Hi if you are at the show. Today's piece started with the beach houses set form Creative Expressions and is decorated really easily with the polishes. With the polish you don't need to gesso the MDF at all you simply add the polish, using the tool that comes in the pot with the product. I used Mediterranean blue, ocean teal and pearl white in bands across the beach house, as you can see the colours blend perfectly.
Next I used more of the polish through the new Mini 3 x 3 masks from creative Expressions to add the diamond patterns . Next I added waves using the gilding polish to stamp the new clear stamp designed to go with the by the sea MDF accessory pack that I used here. The seahorses are separate piece that I coloured in the white and shaded using the teal and blue around the edges. I then stamped the detail of the seahorses using jet black archival ink ( the polish is water based and so takes any ink over the top)
To finish the piece I added cosmic pearl dots and glued on large clear microbes to give the feel of water.
A very different piece but one that I really love as you can see form the pictures It has already found a home in my House!
