Eileen Hull Art With Heart Challenge for November is FAVOURITE RECIPES and so I thought today I would do an overview of one of my favourite recipes to use in my art and that is metal foil and paint. I also wanted to take this opportunity to go into more detail re how I created the Cannisters using the CANISTER DIE which has many fabulous opportunities to use in different ways. I am already thinking about creating a bird house from this die and maybe a house design in some shape or form.
- Die cut the Cannister using the Cannister Die and a die cutting machine.
- Emboss metal foil tape with the Tim Holtz Riveted Metal Texture Fade. Cut the metal foil tape into random pieces and then adhere to the cannister, burnishing each piece to ensure the metal is secured in place.
- Colour the metal with Distress Paints Salty Ocean and Mowed Lawn, allow to dry for a couple of minutes and then rub away any excess paint with a piece of kitchen towel. The paint will remain in all the crevices and highlight all the wonderful detail and texture.
- Sand some areas of the metal with a piece of sandpaper to add to the industrial feel of the piece.
- Colour the labels with Distress Paint and add the lettering Coffee and Tea to each of the canisters, adding twine at the back of each label for added texture and interest.
- Colour wooden embellishments with Distress Paint and then add one to each of the cannisters for added interest.
- Colour a metal circular knob with Distress Paint and add one to the top of each cannister.
- Add a spoon to each of the cannisters.
