OK, now I have a friend who wants to know how I did my angel wings in the last post. So here are some pics of what I did them with.
I used my trusty palette knife, thank goodness I have several of them, they get pretty clogged up and some I have had since------------gasp-------the early 70's. Golden light molding paste is one of favorite doodads to play with. You can put it down with a stencil as I did here or smear it around with the palette knife and make--waves, clouds or just some great texture. I have these sweet little stencils from The Crafters Workshop and they are small in size but powerful little gems.
You can put the paste down then paint over it with color or put color on and wipe it off or as I did just use it on top of color and let dry white and of course before it dried I added some mica flakes. Glitter is like diamonds a girls best friend, at least in my book. I hand drew the shape of the wings and the little feathers at the bottom of them. The feathers I just added some white acrylic paint and kind of feathered the paint with molding paste in the center of it.
A close up of the wing/stencil.
One creature is evil, very evil and by some standards the other is evil also. BUT in the movie the predator is good and works with the humans to kill the Alien. So this is why I thought you should not judge the Predator by how he looks. Told ya it was off the wall. Sooooo here it is. I so enjoyed doing this and hope I don't get put in the corner or kicked out of class at Roses on my Table. Just a journal journey section where we do what we want and no rules. My kind of place.
So here you go, I used some strip burlap on here and some of the tape washi I think it is called and hand drew some curly ques on it. Now the lines on there is from a stamp I made out of egg cartons, the foam kind and glued them all on another piece of egg carton. Some high tech stuff going on here.
So there you go my art as of today. I have another project I am working on right now, for the grands of course. oxox
Thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in my world today.
