Hello everyone. Hope you are all enjoying the weekend. I know I am.. craft is the name of my game lol.
I had just finished a large project which will be going live in a couple of weeks and wanted to do something different. I love skeletons and have recently acquired Andy Skinner's Skull mask - I just had to break open that packet and get stuck in lol. It also serves as a birthday card for one of my sons. They just love this kind of thing instead of a card.
I had a collage frame lying about. I gessoed and then painted it with black acrylic. I lay the mask just as it is and used modelling paste mixed with bronze acrylic paint to cover the entire mask. I wanted the 3 different skulls in the corner. I stamped and copper embossed my dancing skeleton above the skulls. The edges of the frame was stamped and heat embossed using spider and web stamp.
I randomly wiped an ink pad down the left hand side of the frame and embossed with copper. Whilst it was still hot I placed yellow beeswax pellets and mica fragments over the top. I heated it to melt point and left to dry. I sprayed over the entire project using various metallic sprays to give it all a lift. I then used quite lightly heather rub n buff over the skulls and then used mica powder in gold, white and bronze to give a subtle effect.
Now for mother overload of pics!
I do hope you have enjoyed visiting my blog and I hope you will visit again real soon.
