Faux rust



2009 is approaching. Funny how it often starts with new year resolutions this time of the year.
.
My new year's resolution included trying out some new techniques that I had been meaning to try for years. Unfortunately it still qualifies for 2008 ... so I guess i tried out faux rust painting onto ATCs in 2008!!!
.
I started out with painting Jo Sonja 'Celadon' using the credit card technique as described on one of Kelsey's blog posts. Then I proceeded to using a tooth brush to splatter some random sprays of waterred down celadon and then copper paint. Needless to say my pyjamas are covered in paint splatter again. Using my fingers, i finger painted the alphabets, key and keyhole with the celadon and copper paint. Then with a paintbrush, i brushed in some burnt sienna in spots... and after that painted in some areas with prussian blue. Was kinda fun. :o)

Hi Sulea,
I have just discovered your blog and your lovely work.
Thank you for posting about the varnish image transfer technique-I can't wait to try it! I think you are going to love the iridescent medium, I have some and I really enjoy it.

Project management is a step function which provides a check list of activities that must be reviewed prior to proceeding. Each discipline must complete a check list and an interdisciplinary review to ensure an accurate overall engineering effort. Mansour Engineering’s initial step is to define Mansour Engineering client’s objective with a detailed scope of work and a deliverable project list.
