Thank you for joining me today as I get to create with Deflecto® for the very first time.
What did I use:
- Deflecto® 8"x10" lucite stand up frame
- Ann Butler Designs Clearnsap® background stamps, Picnic1 and Diamonds 1
- Castin'Craft® Easy Sculpt® Epoxy Modeling Clay
- DecoArt® media Liquid glass - clear
- Powertex sculpting colours: red, yellow, ivory, bronze,
- Powertex® l plaster statuette
- Powertex® Colortrix pigments - turquoise, gold, yellow
- masking tape, paint brushes, dowels, disposable gloves
- pieces of fabric, t-shirt, gauze, embellishments, sticker sentiment
At first I thought I was just going to make a frame around the border and be done with it, But once I discovered how sturdy and durable the frame was, I decided to put it to a test and see how much of 'my abuse' it could withstand!
|Look at the gorgeous patterns and texture that enhances the frame. I use Ann's stamps to get that fantastic look!|
- I taped off the entire front of the frame with masking tape, vertically. I thought that at the very least it would create interesting texture under the paint.
- I mixed the modeling clay and placed it in a few spots on the frame in a medium layer, in order to leave some 'give' when I pressed the background stamps into the clay. I didn't wait too long. I sprinkled some talcum powder on the clay surface before stamping, thus ensuring a clean impression and no clay residue left in the rubber.
4. Dip your cloth into Powertex and drape it around the goddess.
Add gauze, paper decoration, lace .. to your taste.
5. Secure your sentiment with Liquid Glass and brush a coat of Liquid Glass over your words. Liquid Glass can also enhance objects on your canvas, including buttons, facial features, words...
