Here is my make for Skull Appreciation Day where we all get together and make something using skulls.
I used a lot of DecoArt Media products on this one. I started by painting a large MDF box with DecoArt Media White Gesso and then i spread a thick layer of black gesso over the top and dried it off with a heat gun so that the top was spongy but not completely set. I then used a dragon scale ATC background stamp and pressed it into the gesso. Once set i then applied another layer of black gesso and used the Andy Skinner Snake's Web Stencil. I didn't intend on going for a fallen angel theme but with the scales and the winged skull it just went that way so i stuck with it.
I dry bushed the embossed areas using Dazzling Silver Metallic paint and rubbed Lavish Green and Cosmic Blue Metallic Lustre over the top of the silver. The winged skull is from Things to Alter
The skull was decorated using white gesso and then a layer of white modelling paste using the Short Circuit Stencil. Once dry i painted it with Dazzling metallics in silver and used Amethyst on the wings.
I repeated the dry brushed technique on the front and i painted the large joined wings with Dazzling Metallics in gold. The photo doesn't show it but it shimmers so beautifully in the light.
I did plan on putting velvet in the who inside but it went a bit wrong so i did just the lid with the bit i saved. I painted a star gold and added it to the lid to give it a mystical feel.
I really like Amethyst
