I began to do another mixed media on canvas ... with a certain idea in mind but it changed during the process - typical in my case. But I like the final result! I wanted the elegant peacock feathers to be the heroes on my canvas though and I think I achieved that. I used 8 x 8 in canvas board for this project.
There're many layers underneath - tulle, stenciling with Graphite Texture Paste and peacock feathers too. Well, some extra texture ... does only good!;) Then decided I add a layer of Finnabair Micro Beads. Later on a Copper Crackle Paste. As I was after for some metallic look (or a lot!!) I used loads of Mica Powder Rust, Distress Paint (antiqued bronze), Silks Acrylic Glaze, Cosmic Shimmer Mists and again some Graphite Texture Paste with TCW Stencils. And Liquid Pearls Peacock too by using a brush.
I got a very nice effect with using Clear Texture Paste - when that was dry I went over with a dauber using StazOn Saddle Brown! Cosmic Shimmer Mists on top.
The feathers are adhered with 3D Gloss Gel & Matte Gel Medium. And of course aerosol High Gloss Varnish on top (except on the upper feathers) to seal it all in and for that extra shine!!
I would like to enter this to the following challenges -
