Chipboard leaves, plastic beads, metal embellishments, springs, nuts, bolts, old earrings, chains, masking tape, string, lace, etc as texture for her new hair.
Once all is dry, paint with black gesso.
Next paint with 'lumiere-metallic copper' over skin and dry brushed over her new hair.
Brat '1'-Jo Sonja's Opal Dust was used over the gesso to highlight her dress and choker, then randomly through her hair.
Brat '2'-Chromacryl's -fluoro green paint was used on the flower and lace on the dress. Then opal dust was coated over the top and randomly through her new hair.
Brat '3'-After painting the metallic copper over everything I used Folkart crackle medium as a coat over her skin, let it dry then used Chromacyls Black, fluoro green and yellow oxide paint as a final layer over the top. This is how the crackle effect was created. Once dry again more opal dust was used on her lips, dress and randomly through out her new hair.
Remember to spray clear lacquer over them to seal the final coats. Now I have a new holder for my paint brushes, container for off cuts of ribbon and a new pot plant holder for in my shade house. Hope you enjoyed this project and I've inspired you to repurpose something too. Remember it doesn't matter what surface you wish to cover with paint, 'Imagine If... will have it, and the expertise to make it easy.
Happy crafting till next time
