Altered Wings

How dreamy are those big metal wings in the mixed media kit this month?!  I had so many ideas for them, do I go all steampunk on them or sweet and flowery?  Since we had those awesome Prima flowers to play with I went more fairy dreamland with my thought process!

I basically just slathered the entire set of wings with the crackle paint, more as a base coat than for a crackle medium because I didn’t prep the wings first so I didn’t expect much actual crackling to occur.   It ended up kinda looking plasterish which I loved.

I also applied the crackle paint to the flowers as well and sprinkled the fine glitter over the wet paint on both the wings and the flowers.

When the paint was dry on the wings I gave them a wash with some diluted brown acrylic paint and then rubbed them with the Turquoise InkaGold to highlight them.

The flowers also got a light rubbing of the Turquoise InkaGold as well.

You can see all the details in my process video below!  Check it out!

Thanks for stopping by!!
