Hey BoBunny Peeps! Let me just tell you that I have fallen for the Pentart Metallic Wax Paste. Not only does it add a gorgeous detail to your creations...but it is also super easy to use. For my project today I'm upcycling a plaster frame stand that I sourced at a local discount store in the markdown section.
Life In Color was the perfect pairing for this frame. It's kinda "arty" so I think the mixed media supplies work so great with it.
This frame has a lovely base with additional raised areas to highlight with the wax. It's also super heavy so there is no concern that it might tip over.
While I had the wax paste out I added a bit of detail to the BoBunny Blossoms. To round out the arrangement there's a bit of netting and twine bows. Last but not least metal gears in coordinating silver.
I took out the glass part of the frame so I could add the brick background pattern then adhere the following layers with foam spacers. Bling is always a good for an well placed bit of sparkle. These coordinate really well so the don't contrast with the background.
So many layers!!!! This definitely has a very dimensional look, and the wax paste does the trick in making them stand out nicely.
Here's the process of finishing the frame....
I was able to cover it in with only 1 coat of Pentart Creamy Acrylic Metallic Paint in Graphite. Yay for 1 coat!!!! After allowing to dry I used my finger and a very light touch to add the wax to the raised areas. Easy Peasy. So much beauty for so little work!!!
Okay that's all for me today. Wishing everyone a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative.
