Live Life Tag Board

Hi everyone, happy to be back with another DT post . For this project I used some of the Art Anthology dimensional paints… Metal Effects, Velvet’s and Sorbet. These paints are quite different than most paints I’ve used, they are translucent yet dimensional, so the heavier the application, the more dimensional and opaque they become. The Velvet’s have a beautiful matt, smooth finish, the Sorbet’s have high gloss and a tinge of glitter, I used the combination of both for the leaves.

As for the Metal Effects, I love using them over black gesso by applying the copper first and highlighting with the gold, which makes the copper look more like a rusty background…love this technique, will definitely be using it on another project. On this project I also used it on the face mold to give it an aged, distressed look, hard to see the end result in the video, but you can see it in the close up photo.

Hope you’re feeling inspired!





Have a great day!!!
