This is my second post for our Eileen Hull Art With Heart Challenge this month, my first post can be found HERE. Our theme is Hauntings and Holidays and as this is probably the last chance I will have to make something for Halloween that was the obvious choice for me.
DecoArt Media Crackle Paste to areas of the case. I pressed the Sandra Evertson Relic Skull into the wet Paste and then I allowed the Paste to dry completely and then painted with two coats of DecoArt Media Cobalt Turquoise Hue Fluid Acrylic.
Texture Sand Paste to add texture to the design. Once again I pressed another of Sandra Evertson Relic pieces into the wet Paste and allowed to dry. Once completely dry I then painted with two coats of Cobalt Turquoise Hue.
Burnt Umber Fluid Acrylic, paying special attention to the edges and cracks and ridges. I repeated this process throught the case, using a pouncing action with my brush to add the paint. I like to add a little at a time to add layers and I then allowed to dry.
Quinacridone Gold Fluid Acrylic, once again adding a small amount at a time.
Carbon Black Fluid Acrylic. To tone down the Turquoise a little and to age I applied a dirty wash over the top which I also applied to each of the Relic pieces.
Paynes Grey over each of the Relic piecec, this really highlighted the cracks beautifully.
I would like to enter this into the DecoArt Media Mixed Media Haunts Challenge along with the Emerald Creek Halloween Special Challenge.
