Hi everyone this morning I thought I would have a play around after joining a group on facebook called Things to Alter
The group has loads of inspiration for items from the shop as well as some fantastic tutorials.
The item I made was this one.
The tutorial I found was by the fantastic Katie on how to make a cog look rusty. which can be found on the above facebook link.
I had to give it a go but didn't know what else to do so I took a canvas applied some gesso.
Background is corrugated card. stuck down with pva glue.
Then took the mdf pieces purchased from Things to alter
and glued them onto the corrugated card.
Added some tissue paper around edges.
Then I added blue acrylic paint once dried.
I went over with black acrylic paint and then wiped it off while still wet.
It still didn't look any good so then I took some paprika spice (Yes you heard right)
diluted it with water and started staining the edges with it.
