The Ravages of Time
Hi everyone I have a wall plaque for you today that I made out of foam board.
It is mid month reminder time over at SASPC this
months challenge is Ravages of Time.
If you have never tried to do steam punk why not give it a go. I started by using
some grunge board that I had tried to die cut with a cog die but was it was
to thick so it left a lovely imprint of the cogs.
I then used a Tim Holtz die to cut out the houses. I used Deco Art media line
paints, textures & varnishes, to colour them. The above house was scraped with
texture sand paste once dry it was coloured with
media fluid acrylic in cobalt turquoise and two coats of
Andy's dirty wash.
unfortunately I can't tell you how i made the base of the house above
but if you would like to learn Andy Skinner Timeworn
on line coarse shows you how.
This is done using the same process. paints used were Quinacridone Gold
covered with burnt umber, & slight touches of cobalt turquoise.
Americana burnt orange was painted onto white card that had been screwed up
& the time stencil was added with media modelling paste.
Three coats of Andy's dirty wash was used over the
top to age it. Andy's industrial stamps were
stamped in black stazon to age it further.
Close up of the cog impressed grunge board.
Another close up.
Deco art media crackle paste was used to frame the houses.
Once dry it was painted with Phthalo turquoise &
treasure gold was used to highlight the uneven area's.
Home made clock embellishments and cogs were used to decorate
and enhance the plaque.
That's all folks please let me know what you think as I really
enjoy hearing what you have to say and it inspires
me to keep trying.
