A Floral Jar

Hello, welcome to another tutorial. As some of you already know, I love repurposing common household objects and turning into works of art. I recently made this beautiful floral jar with tissue, clay flowers and Art Anthology Products and I loved it so much that I decided to do a video tutorial.

Floral Jar

I make my own clay flowers with Delight Clay™ and silicone molds, the kind you use for gum paste and fondant. I find this much cheaper as molds can be used over and over again. Also, the detail you get using the Delight Clay™ is amazing!

Below is a supply list and a video tutorial showing you how to make this jar. It actually would be a great gift for someone special.

Art Anthology Products used:

Salmon Colorations Spray
Sandcastle Colorations Spray
Flamingo Sorbet Dimensional Paint

Other products used are:
glass jar
gesso
tissue
clay flowers
collage paper
soft gel medium
white acrylic paint

Re-Purposed Can

Good morning!! A few days ago, I noticed that my succulent plant has outgrown his pot. After thinking about what to do with it, I decided to use a can that I had cleaned with the intention of re-purposing it at the right opportunity.

To begin, I covered the can with the Patina Seafoam Stone Effects from the (Patina Texture Set) using a palette knife. The palette knife works much better than a brush because the brush would soak up the medium.

I applied a good amount to the can. I like that the medium isn’t flat… it gives the can a good amount of texture. I let this dry for a few hours.

Once the Patina Seafoam Stone Effects was dry, I added the Patina Teal Velvet all around the can, leaving the Top and bottom of the can alone. I wanted the Patina Seafoam Stone Effects to show through a little.

After frying the Patina Teal Velvet using a heat gun, I used my fingers to smear on the Patina Copper Metal Effects. This stuff is amazing!!! I LOVE IT. I let it dry for a bit.

I used the Raider Colorations Spray to cover the entire can to make it look more vintage.

Once the can was completely dry, I altered two metal butterflies and a veneer heart using the same mediums and then used Super Glue to glue it to the can.

And here is the finished product! LOVE IT.

Products Used:

Patina Texture Set

Colorations Sprays: Raider

“Imagine” – An Upcycling Project

Hello, today I am sharing with you an upcycling project. Guess what the substrate is? Did you guess a sardine tin? Isn’t that crazy? To think you can turn a sardine tin into a work of art! All you need are Art Anthology mixed media paints!

Imagine

In this piece, I used the Art Anthology Rust Texture Set to create that amazing rust look on the tin. The tin was not actually rusty!  I added some simple embellishments; gauze, a tiny piece of paper and corrugated cardboard, a word sticker, and a butterfly.
