After layers of at least five different mediums, I got this.
Like I said, I'm experimenting. This is more artistic than specific. I grabbed various things I had on hand, and, just winged it. There's some of my homemade paint (from the Farragoz course), and, some of my own concoctions in the mix.
I like what happened.
Here are a few other experiments.
A metal butterfly.
I molded this angel wing with clay, and layered on this finish.
I'm about to tackle a few frames, and, boxes.
See ya soon.
just love to discover a .. alchemy!ReplyDelete
I REALLY like what happened. I guess you just never know what you're going to get. They all look so authentic.ReplyDelete
They definitely have that original paint look which I love so much. Beautifully aged.ReplyDelete
Pretty color, Rosemary! I love the detail on that first piece.ReplyDelete
Love the green colour and the finish, definitely looks like they are a few centuries old! I think you have mastered the technique. Can't wait to get to the point you are at with the Farragoz course, to the point of experimenting!ReplyDelete
That butterfly is stunning!ReplyDelete
WOW!!! I love love LOVE!ReplyDelete
Just did some shopping at your new Zibbet store. Nice wares, Rosemary - keep up the wonderful work, ma'am!!ReplyDelete
Your finishes are amazing! I got my cross/heart today and I just love it. Thank you! :)ReplyDelete
Love absolutely all!
Beautiful! I love the artistic vs. specific approach. So many wonderful discoveries and creative results!ReplyDelete
Beautiful outcome Rosemary. Love how all the pieces came out. Hope you are staying warmReplyDelete
First, thank you for getting me to take the Farragoz course. Second I have been playing around with patinas and finishes and wondered If you have tried them on concrete. I have a few of the old (40's) yard animals and would love to get off the modern paint and add an old finish. Think it would hold up to the outside?ReplyDelete
The patinas that you create are so incredibly beautiful, Rosemary. They just take my breath away because they look so old! It's just incredible! I want to try to get a chippy patina on a new wood cabinet I'm having built for me. If I layer on ASCP really thick and goopy, would I get a really big and chippy look like you did here....?ReplyDelete
I love these Rosemary. My favorite is the first one. Hope all is well!!ReplyDelete
I love how you turn everything into a treasure. Beautiful!ReplyDelete
Lovely lovely lovely! The metal butterfly just took my breath away. xoReplyDelete
I absolutely love all the old finishes you are coming up with....ReplyDelete
wish I would take time to play like that.
that top piece might be my favorite yet.
Love the finishes Rosemary! The chipped layers give each piece a 3-D effect...so unique. The colors are beautiful and of course, wonderfully original. I've got a vintage cloche that would look fabulous showcasing your butterfly!ReplyDelete
Loved reading about you on Kris's blog. Hope you are doing well and enjoy your weekend:-)ReplyDelete
