Hi everyone, Happy February, it’s the month of love… and well if you know me you know how much I love steampunk. I love everything about it, the fantasy, the grunge, the unusual, the colors, the Victorian feel to it. It does not limit my imagination, I can go wild with transforming an ordinary object into something crazy and unexpected.
I purchased these two letters quite some time ago at my local craft store on clearance. Originally they were $14.99 a piece…. what !!!! But I got them for $2.00 each, what a steal.
Loaded with lots of yummy textures enhanced with Art Anthology’s paints, sprays and pastes helped achieve the aged look.
With the use of Art Anthology’s stencil, drippings from my glue gun and lots of different sized seed beads, my new wall art work started to come alive.
I just love using unexpected items in my art work and my letter here is filled with floral rocks that were beautifully transformed with Art Anthology’s paints.
Many of my items on this piece were made from paperclay, grunge board or plastic, but the patina’d look that AA’s paste and paints provides transforms them into metal-like piece.
I hope this has inspired you to enter the world of steampunk, don’t be afraid, let your imagination run free and just have fun with it. For your pleasure I have included a Snapguide tutorial for your viewing and also below are a list of products from AA that helped me achieve the look I was going for. xoxo Toni
