Up-Cycled Tin


Today I want to share this altered tin.

I used blue acrylic paint mixed with gesso to paint the tin. Next, I stamped  and embossed Bloom Girl Sharon then colored her using acrylic paint. I added the leaves on the background using a stencil and modeling paste then added some ultra fine pearl glitter while still wet. I used a white wash to tone down the background color and used a marker to outline some parts of the leaves.

For the leaves on the side I used the stencil and paint then added modeling paste over it. 

 I finished by adding pearls and sealing the whole thing with gel medium.

I want to enter this in:
