Rust

Hi everyone! Dee here with my rust post for this weeks challenge. Those of you who know my work will know this is one of my favourite effects to recreate. This time though I used Pentart rust effect powder and regents and I must say I am pretty happy with the results. I also made my home made tissue paper with Stamparama stamps and used that on tag 2 and 3.



Rust!


Tag 1
Firstly I painted the tag with Relic chalk paint next I used iron paste mixed with a few art stones at the base of a size 7 tag that had been cut and gouged with a craft knife. Next I used the iron powder over this and followed with the reagents liquids.


 I used a small amount of mica fragments to enhance the rust. Once developed I then used weather wood over the top part of the tag, once dry I then followed with Everlasting chalk paint and waited for it to crack. Using a small heart out of Tando's new heart collection I put dimensional paste on it then painted it and blinged it up with Treasure gold. Finally Hannah Oxberry's rusty wire wound in a circle around the heart.


Tag 2
The same as tag 1 but a sprinkling of sand glitter in the wet paint and a compass and another design of my handmade tissue paper.



Tag 3
Covered entirely with hand made tissue paper adhered to the tag with Matt medium if you look closely you can see flashed of gold and splashes of Raw Umber and Prussian Blue Hue.
