Yes, it's that time of year again
And nobody does it better than the people who use the products from
Retro Cafe Art Gallery!
I'll give you a bit of a Step-Out here starting with just a plain corked bottle from Hobby Lobby.
It's painted with Purple Viva Precious Metal Paint. This stuff is absolutely amazing when it comes to metallic color and shine.
Then I added Copper Texture Crackle Paste in a few spots.
While it's still wet, sprinkle Grass Green Micro Beads into the paste. Let it dry.
Always experimenting, and here I found the paint wouldn't stick well, so rather than give up, I added a layer of Clear Texture Crackle....
...and look at the amazing results! Pretty cool, and now it is sealed so it won't come off.
I decided to add some embellishments on the front of the bottle. Here I used a Flourish painted black. I'll add color with Inka Golds when it dries.
I painted the Ornate Cameo with Pumpkin Liquid Pearls. Then I added Green-Yellow Inka Gold on top. You can see the big difference it makes with the right side not having the Green added yet.
I painted the charm with Heavy Black Gesso and used Inka Golds on it as well. Pretty nice coloration for Halloween.
In order to add something to the cork, I used Licorice Glass Beads, a Skull bead, and a stick pin for height.
You can also see the Ornate Flourish has the Inka Golds and Copper Micro Beads.
Here you can see the Black, Grass, and Copper Micro Beads on the Spider. He's first painted with Key Lime Liquid Pearls.
The Skull and Crossbones Brass Charm completes the frame at the bottom.
It's all put together with 3D Matte Gel that holds like crazy! The Micro beads are added with Soft Gloss Gel to keep them shiny.
