Morning, Mark here, I am sharing a little T-light candle holder, The heart started as plain grey cast cement.
The heart was given a coat of Gesso and then a coat of Decoart white acrylic paint, using the New fluid acrylics from Decoart the colours were added as a strong wash giving the almost tie die look.
The image was stamped with archival black ink 3 times to cover the top of the heart.Using the black modelling paste from the Decoart media line and a pallet knife I went round the edge of the heart smoothing out randomly. Some dry brushing with white picked out all the details and gave a faux stone finish.
The hole for the candle was painted black and also dry brushed.
Once all was dry the Heart was given a couple of coats of Satin Varnish, this really helped lift the colours and make them pop.
Thanks for stopping by, Mark xxx
