My Angel Winged Lady

 I found these amazing plaques at a huge Craft Store in Minnesota while on vacation. I bought several.

This transformation is probably the most remarkable of them all.


I covered the plain kraft-colored base with a combination of Stone Effects Paste-Pumice, Mini Art Stones and Texture Powder.

Then I glued the paper clay Iron Orchid Design moulded pieces in place.


When they were dry, I added a layer of clear Texture Crackle to the surface. Next glazes in brown and grey are painted on making sure to get into all the nooks and crannies.  This shows the piece dry. I took a baby wipe to the moulds and toned them down to create much lighter areas of contrast with the crackle.


I have several types of brass wings from Retro Cafe Art Gallery. I like to tone down the brightness by aging them with a bit of  Pewter Black patina and then buffing them with a Detailing Block to raise the shine.

I chose the Large Brass Angel Wings in the upper right for this piece.


Finnabair sent us 3 of her new Mechanicals sets and they were calling my name to be added in the open areas of the plaque.

The Patina Pastes are easily added with an alcohol ink colored rhinestone glued to the centers of the Metal Lotus. I rolled the petals a bit with a jewelry tool.

Metallique Paints and Waxes are used to brighten spots, but are hard to see here. Turning the project in the light makes a big difference.


The Cameo has copper Micro Beads set in a Vintage Trinket.

Mores waxes on the raised areas of the Pumice stone pick up some shine. It's all glued together with Heavy Body Gel. Amazing stuff.


That's it for today. I hope you'll be inspired to play, and please let me know what you think. As always.....
