Paint with Gingersnaps





The Gingersnaps challenge this Wednesday is to use paint. On this piece there are a number of different paints used. There are first patches of  Terra paint applied to create patches of texture. While still wet dampened stamps were pressed into it to create further texture. When dry acrylic paint was then added over the background. You can see where a cog mask was also used. Some metal was passed through a cuttlebug and sprayed with Adirondak  spray ink. The wings were painted with acrylic and then lightly stroked with a pale precious metal colour that creates a subtle sheen. Around the edges and over some high spots Ferro gold iron was applied. Croco clear paint was added to the heart once the purple acrylic was dry and the surface of this has a subtle crackle on it. The backing paper has been painted with acrylics too.
