Today I bring you my new project related to… Steampunk!! I adore this style and love making projects full of gears, old clocks, flowers…
The palette I have used for this occasion relies on metallics accents, of course; copper, steel, and gold all covered in rust and oxide. By using Velvet Effect Pastes and the wide range of Acrylic Paints It was easy to achieve the result I was looking for.
For this project, I have used a Hardboard Tag as a base for decoration. Hardboard tag is a hard surface. Therefore, you can add layers, and layers of pastes and paints and plenty of decoration objects!
After covering the Hardboard Tag with Gesso Paste Black and applying some Fine Texture Paste with a palette knife, I painted it with Velvet Paste randomly. For the oxide effect just a little bit of Acrylic Paint in “Mint” tone. After that I made my composition with various elements, all painted with Velvet Paste as well.
So this is it! Let me show you some pictures and see if you like it.
See you soon!!
