Souvenir tajin makeover

Hi, how are you, I gave my souvenir tajin a makeover which I got from a trip to North Africa years ago. It was just plain terracotta colour with some sort of glaze on top. I desired for it a distressed look now! Gessoed it at first, some texture paste, attached a couple of Finnabair Art Pebbles too and then over with the astounding Rust Paste. After that I put a layer of Prima's gorgeous Egg Blue Chalkboard Paint, dabbed a bit off with a kitchen paper and put  a painting knife in action to give it a final worn looking appearance. A layer of Clear Wax to finish it off!






Popping this to Mixed Media Place November Challenge too -


And to Berry 71 Bleu December Challenge - Winter Wonderland



All the best,
Kris

''One morning.''

Good morning, another mixed media canvas (10 x 14") from me, this time I concentrated on Powertex mainly. Tried out its Rusty Powder too. And its Structure Paste. You can feel the difference of that paste immediately, the texture is just amazing to work with. What else, the 3D Balls are looking like they are toasted! I am just loving that Rusty Powder, it works wonders. My canvas is still smelling vinegar!! Added some frost with Glass Beads Texture Gel, a bit of glam with a mixture of Finn's Glass Glitter & Metallique Ancient Coin and Gel Medium. And the lace got a bit of treatment with Heavy Gesso. I can feel the happiness when an idea has been accomplished and I can see it on the canvas as the result.






Entering my mixed media painting to Mixed Media Place November Challenge. I mainly got inspired from those woolen items on top left.




Thanks a million for popping over!
