Hi all Cheryl here with my first post for Imagine If.... I am a bit of a steampunk girl, and I like trying new things, and basically playing with different products. For this post I have created a heart shaped torso.
Imagine If... Products used:
Large MDF Funky Heart Chipboard
Gesso-Dina Wakley Matt Gel Medium-Dina Wakley
Cloth 6mm D/S tape(red) extra sticky
Vintaj Patina Paint 'Antique Copper'
Ink Spray- After
Midnight(Dylusions) London Blue (Dylusions)
Distress Spray Stain- Tarnished Brass(Tim Holtz)
Distress Ink Pad -Ground
Expresso (Tim Holtz -Black Soot
Asstd Cute metal
Glass Glitter- Gold and Navy (Art Ingredients)
Gesso coat the MDF Heart and chipboard Flourish.
Use plastic shopping bags to model the two bossoms. .Place them in the corner of a bag, then roll them underneath, like a
bread dough roll, to get the right shape.
Attach to the heart with magic
tape. Cover with a layer of gel medium and tissue paper. Once
dry coat with gesso.
Make with pencil on the chest how
much skin you wish to show at the top and cover this area with muslin then gesso
and paint with skin coloured paint. Place 3 rows of D/S tape as pictured above.
Use dictionary pages(cut into strips Approx 3" by A4
length)scrunch up and then randomly scribe vertical lines up them.(this makes it
easier to gather)
Start from bottom and place 1 strip at a time, pulling back only enough double sided tape for 1 strip at a time. Cover with
matt gel medium then distress with 'ground espresso' ink.
Corset: time to play, you just use all sorts of different products and shades and textures.
