The Amazing Colours Of Rust

Hi every one hope you are all ok and busy crafting away, Today I have 
been trying to recreate rust as I think it is truly beautiful from it's 
aqua's and turquoise through to russet and copper tones.

So here we go lots of photo's

This was created with Deco Art's media range.

I have a collection of photo's of rust on my Pintrest page under inspiration.

from these photo's I have tried to recreate the natural effects of rust

I am very pleased with them.

more photo's just in case you missed any crackle!!!!!


On the second panel i introduced crackle gaze in places

With alcohol inks

more photo's

I would love to know what you all think!
Cheers Dee

Wow! Can't take my eyes off all this texture and rusty colour tones goodness, Dee!

Thank you so much for sharing all the wonderful close ups. Just had a wonderful dose of "worn and weathered"...which definitely made my day!

Wow Dee! You have done a splendid job of achieving the most glorious rusted colors and hues- and that turquoise is out of this world!
If someone had told me 20 years ago, I would love rust- well, I would think they were rather nutty!! teeheehee xo

Blown away and jaw dropping is the only way to describe your play day with rust Dee. The crackle you just want to reach through the screen and stroke. The addition of the alcohol ink is the jaw dropping bit, how many wonderful warm tones have you got there.

MORE PLEASE!!! :-) xxx

As I love rusting techniques as well and also know that it can be difficult to achieve the rust effect, I have to say you blew me away! Awesome job and so cool! ~Niki
