ATC Box for Andy Skinner DT

Hi everyone Dee here with this lovely ATC box from Creative Expressions I decorated it using Andy Skinners new pastes and paints from Creative Expressions. I really enjoyed this project as it developed itself like most of my pieces, I was really happy with the results.

Firstly I glued together the ATC Box from Creative Expressions.  I used Andy's stencil cogged up by Creative Expressions I put Andy's structure paste through it onto the ATC box. I also used strata paste and a smigin of lava paste. A quick coat of Gesso.

I heat set everything with my heat gun watched the lava paste expand. I then started with my washes. of colours. Raw umber dry, `Paynes Grey, Cobalt teal dry, very watery wash of Andy's new ocean matt paint. 

I went back in with quinacridone gold in areas as it then looks like rust. a sprinkle of cold patina and heat set to add to the weathered look see pic below.

The above pic also shows the lava paste coloured with quinacridone gold.

I added little gems that i had coloured with Andy's Prussian blue pigment paint. 

You can just see the ATC that I did poking out of the box.

Here is a close up showing the Cosmic Shimmer lustre Polish Glistening gold was used to accentuate the structure. 

A close up off the embossing enamel.

ATC was decorated in the same way as the box.
I hope you like my box as much as i enjoyed making it for you.
