Lets get Shiny with metallic

Hello everyone
Its Pooja here ! I am back again with my new mixed media project. Today I  have come with a mini canvas which I have made for creative art mix media joint project stage 4 n also this is my DT work for itsy bitsy with  their Little Birdie's newly launched Tinted Metallic Paints.
I wanted to see their results on a black base so I decided to make a mixed media canvas which has a black backdrop and a multiple number of materials. This will allow me to see the effect of these paints on different surface like metal, chipboard, fabric, plastic, resin embellishments etc.

Have a look....

  1. I have used a piece of wood and pasted a canvas sheet on, after that I pasted different material like decorative lace, burlap lace, chipboard and some leftover die cut negative and chipboard negatives, my old broken jewelry, beads etc.
2. Then I applied black gesso all over them.

3. Added some sand in black gesso and applied this paste where ever I wanted to give a texture.

4. After completing the texture with sand, it looked like this but on the  black base it's difficult to see this texture. However, after the colors are put in place it's gives an awesome look.

5. After it was completely dry, I started applying gesso with  dry brush randomly. Then I used gold splash colors, first to give a light shade to my background and then started blinding color layers with Tinted Metallic Paints.

 I decided to make it colourful and used different shades of tinted metallic paints.

7. I have added resin embellishments, some piece of my old jewelry art stone and for some more shine, I have used Hearty Melange, golden hearts, Fairy Dust- Rich Copper,prima glass beads,micro beads, sequence
8. In the end I distressed the whole piece with Silver Charm  and Silver Oak tinted metallic paints.
8.at the end I have applied finnabair waxes to increase my project beauty
