Apothecary Shop in Turmoil.......D

Hey everyone

This week it is my choice of challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu and I took the easy option again!

Anything goes

I chose to put together a canvas.  I love working with canvas... oooooooooooooo!

 I smothered the canvas with modelling paste mixed with green acrylic for part of background and then added blue for the remaining areas.  

I used cogs to imprint the background.  Once dry,  I dry brushed over the raised areas using red.  I then used a gold spray and finally gilding wax in bronze.  

I filled the two glass vials with red paint and the other with gold mica spray. The smaller bottle with the red paint appears to have toppled over, look at all that red mess... wheres the cleaner when you need her lol.  

The wooden vials, the Bunsen burner, ravens, watch face and cogs had modelling paste wiped over the top to give depth and treated the same as the canvas background apart from the ravens.  They were painted black with rock candy over the top.  

I coiled some copper wire from my stash and just randomly placed onto the canvas.   

I do hope you have enjoyed your visit as much as I enjoy you visiting me.  Please do call again real soon. Oh and don't forget to pop on over to Eclectic Ellapu and join in with the fun.
