Hello!!! How is it going? This time I´m here to share with you my latest work based on vintage. What can I say about Vintage? This is the style where I find myself more confident, love everything related to past times… so, what inspired me is an old wedding picture, and I decided to create an old-fashioned frame for it. Do you want to know how I made this?
First step. after making our composition, will be covering all the pieces with White Gesso and let them dry.
I added some resin molds to give it a more dramatic look and then added some texture paste randomly.
Now let´s play with gold! Paint the whole surface with different tones of Metallic Paint Gold to achieve the look of the old vintage paint.
When dried, apply a thick layer of Crackle Paint, and it is essential to leave it to dry well. I usually leave it overnight.
In the meantime, we could step forward painting the other plaque in red. Leave it dry and then apply the stencil with texture paste. After that, when dried, cover it again with red paint and Patina, as shown in the picture.
Once the beautiful crackles appear it is time to cover it again with gold paint and soft touches of Bitumen, which will give it an incredible vintage look.
Some Turquoise on the edges.Done! We only need to assemble all the pieces and of course, chose our picture. We can use the Triple Thick Gloss Varnish for making the “date label” which will give us a fantastic effect.
I hope I inspired you to make a Vintage Frame yourself!
