Tando Creative - Modeling Paste

It's texture paste week over on the Tando inspiration blog and I had fun creating a very grungy project.

To start I took one of the long Tando chipboard tags, gave it a coat of gesso and then a light coat of transparent iron oxide keeping it light and barely covering the whole of the tag.
To get some texture on the tag I took DecoArt modeling paste and mixed it with a little burnt umber media fluid acrylic and with a palette knife applied it through the long flourish stencil, turning it over to apply it at the bottom.

Next I took two different sizes of the grab bag circles and cut a little from each of them and gave them a coat of burnt umber. Before the tag dried I took the circles applied wet glue to the backs and and stuck them into the modeling paste....

.... then I added some texture sand paste around the edges of the circles and the tag itself then left it to fully dry.

Once dried I rubbed a candle over the texture paste parts and then stippled with dark grey, cobalt turquoise and cobalt blue and rubbed the colours off of the textured areas.

I repeated again this time adding in some transparent yellow iron oxide.

Next I focussed on the sand texture areas and the edges and stippled in burnt umber, burnt sienna and paynes grey followed by rust in a bottle - a coat of quinacridone gold spritzed with water and left to settle before drying.

I dribbled some watery TYIO through, dried it and repeated with cobalt turquoise to bring the patina colours back into play a little bit.

The seam binding ribbon took the paint washes beautifully.

The crown is a diecut and I glued two together to give it some dimension.

And finally I found a lost relative and painted a star to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by today, my project can also be seen on the Tando blog
