Be Still My Mechanical Steampunk Heart

I've been playing with the new Mechanicals and Paints from 
Finnabair that
 Retro Cafe Art 
has coming in very soon.

This is a project with lots of new things and things from my stash.

Let you imagination go wild!

I painted the Chunky ATC with Black Gesso and then added Modeling Paste with
one of the new Texture Brushes.

You create a pattern through the paste. When dry, add your new Opal Magic Paints, and a few dashes of Heavy White Gesso splattered around.

The gears and wings and key are all painted up or highlighted with Inka Golds.

You can start with this small piece and have a great time
getting your STEAMPUNK on!

Hope you're inspired to play.
