The Archangel Michael

Today I'm showing you a couple of shots of the weekend project I made for 

using the wonderful new products from 

Prima and Sandra Evertson Relics and Artifacts.


I've take one of the Archangels and used a brown antique glaze on him with a bit of water.

I used an open back canvas to create a niche for the sculpture. The paper was cut, corner to corner, to open up and roll back over the edges.

I added Copper Micro and Zinc Glass Beads in the background in a layer of Soft Gloss Gel.

The red painted Stars and Pearl Ribbon Trim are added with 3D Matte Gel on the edges. I painted the rolled-back paper with an bright gold paint.

You're gonna love these Resin Pieces from Prima. The possibilities are endless.

Check out the links and get to creating!

Linda,
This looks like it should be behind glass and locked up for a showing in a museum. Just gorgeous!

Many years ago, my mom gave me an angel similar to this. I always kept it on a table because I couldn't figure out how to hang it. This is a great idea, and now I know what to do to hang it. Thanks for sharing!

Absolutely splendid Linda!!
How do you roll that paper over the edge? I love the look you have created- your colors are sooo rich!

I roll it over a large paintbrush handle. It's pretty thick paper so it holds the shape.

A perfect piece, Linda. I've been poring over it as I check the mail each day for my relics to arrive. When you say you used a brown was, how did you concoct it?
Thanks, Marjan
PS Your kitchen looks terrific.
