Welcome to another challenge and month over at Creative Embellishments. Today I have such a treat, this is a canvas I put together with lots of goodies. This months twist is to use Rust. And let me tell you I hit the brief on this one.
Here is the inspirational photo, to get those ideas going. I had recently picked up some moulds and have been jonzing to use them. So I took inspiration from all the rush and vintage and the general colours of the mood board to put together my canvas.
Using a canvas, I added a layer of rice paper. Covering and blending the rice paper with resist paste and chalk paints, I blending and patch the background. I added more texture on the background with the Rivit stencil and some bronze crackle paste.
I started with the steampunk pipe corners medium gears, pipe works. Using a variety of acrylics and texture paste, I add texture and then did various layers of paint to blend to get the look I am striving for.
As far as the mould goes for, I made the mould out of fast setting resin. I applied a white coat of gesso before painting and blending based off the colours of the photos. I loved the pop of blue to incorporate the background of the canvas.
Using the Rivet Stencil I did add more texture to the background. I used a crackle paste to add to the aged look I was going for.
Here is a video of the creative process.
A few more close-ups.
